FoodFund International CEO Johnny Tomazos has revealed that the company will be launching a new casual dining brand this year: Eat Greek.

Located on the Jumeirah Beach Residences’ (JBR) The Walk, the restaurant will be potentially rolled out to London if it finds success in Dubai.

The menu is being developed in consultation with Hector Botrini, a Greek chef who has his own reality TV show along the lines of Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen.

Tomazos said to Caterer Middle East: “We have spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect location to suit the Greek concept. We needed size as the first one needed to be iconic; we needed the location to be quite scenic and we needed there to be footfall. The beach in JBR ticked all the boxes.”

He revealed it will be housed in a double-storey villa with double volume ceilings.

He added: “It’s a welcome change because when you go for a Greek concept, you’re not competing with anyone from a landlord point of view.”
