The restaurant, which combines Greek warmth with modern simplicity, takes its name from the cult classic 1960’s Greek film I Parisiana and quite literally means: Suzi, you eat. Spread across two floors, the light and airy upstairs dining room sits 30, with space for a further 10 diners around the buzzy kitchen counter. Downstairs, guests can revel in Greek holiday vibes while working their way through a cocktail menu featuring drinks made with lesser-known Greek spirits such as Mastika and Tsipouro.
Dissolve-in-the-mouth honey cakes from Mazi
With Mazi, the team took classic Greek cuisine and gave it a clean eating finish. At Suzi Tros, it’s all about sustainability, seasonality and small plates showcasing the breadth of Northern Greek cuisine. Those who have enjoyed something of a love affair with Mazi over the past five years will be reassured to learn that they can still enjoy the dishes of its Head Chef John Skotida – just a stone’s throw away at Suzi Tros.
The menu features a selection of raw dishes including Crayfish Tartare, Sea Urchin and Bonito Carpaccio. While hot plates take the form of Whole Grilled Calamari, Grandmama’s Meatballs and Grilled & Smoked Whole Aubergine. These will be accompanied by an ever-changing selection of fresh, Greek-inspired salads. All this can be washed down by a number of adventurous Greek wines on a list curated by Adrien.
Now, with not one but two first-rate Greek restaurants in Notting Hill, all you’ll need to mentally transport yourself to an island holiday is a little bit of sunshine.
