Lazarou diverges from his ‘fish and seafood only’ mantra that has guided Varoulko, to introduce some stand-out meat dishes. Insider recommends the peinirli with mince ragout and parmesan, the beef carpaccio with onion mayonnaise and a playful twist on the souvlaki – served in a glass with tenderloin and minced beef sauce with yoghurt!
