Artemis & Apollo is a Greek taverna for the people offering an unhurried taste of Mediterranean life. Black Sheep Restaurants honours the unfussiness of Greek cooking with a menu of classic Athenian taverna fare, designed to be shared family-style. Historically, tavernas in Greece were commonly found in underground cellars. It wasn’t until relatively recently, when the bourgeoisie and intellectuals caught on, that these little havens spilled out into the streets. These days, Greek tavernas have become synonymous with long, relaxed lunches shared with friends that roll easily into convivial, ouzo-fuelled evenings.
Chef Andrée Lefuel’s passion for Greek food and extensive experience working under such esteemed masters as Daniel Boulud and Ludo Lefebvre equip him with the ideal toolkit to head the kitchen at Artemis & Apollo. His laser-focus and attention-to-detail coupled with experience as executive chef at Greek restaurant, Souvla, have proven invaluable in the development of the menu at Artemis & Apollo, where he honours the traditional flavours of Greek cooking without being intimidated by the history of the ancient cuisine.
