Meraki, Fitzrovia

Project Details

Meraki (meaning, to do something with all your heart, with love, with your soul, with complete devotion), a contemporary Greek restaurant located in Fitzrovia, near London's West End.
The site was once two restaurants, the client acquired one on Great Titchfield Street and another site on Foley Street.
The clients concept is to offer fine original Greek dining and a separate cocktail bar while providing a transition between the two buildings if their clients require.

The brief:
Dentons were introduced by the developer but worked solely with the client.
The client expressed the desire to have everything to hand on the front bar but still have space to work at speed whilst serving. On top of the need for space they also required low level drawer bottle refrigeration.
The back-bar element was also as important as the front bar. The client required a large surface area for glass display and enough space to hold 150 spices.

Installation of new fabrication and equipment, planning, and all services for the associated area took only 5 weeks’ from first site meeting to hand over.

Future Works:
The client also required planning & design work for the private basement bar area. Status - this area is being renovated by the developer.
