The Apollo

11 Apr

So after The Berry’s birthday party, we dumped the birthday girl with her visiting grandparents and went out for lunch with a few mates to celebrate another, grown-up birthday (two actually). The Apollo is soooo hip right now but for lunch didn’t seem heaving, just nicely buzzing. Walked in to have my absolute hated first impression – being studiously ignored by every staff member in the joint ’cause the maitre d’ happens to be out of the room. Terrible. Just make eye contact already, it’s not hard.

Anyway, once we did get seated it was happy days. The Full Greek seemed logical and kicked off with the most delicious taramasalata I’ve ever scooped into a piece of pita. Slow cooked lamb, simply yummy roast taters, it was all restrained and simple and unfussy. Would happy return for grilled octopus with chickpeas and cucumber or rosewater jelly donuts, see if they compare to the gems at this joint.
