The Athenian is delighted to announce on Monday 7th December, the brand was awarded both Restaurant of the Year and Best Editions Restaurant at the second annual UK Deliveroo Restaurant Awards. After 400,000 votes were counted on social media and presented by celebrity judges, such as Vogue Williams, Maya Jama, as well as Will Shu, Deliveroo’s CEO, The Athenian were crowned winners.
Judges praised The Athenian for their support of the NHS, donating over 2,500 meals to the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Greek restaurant also gave a 50% discount available to all NHS staff, as well as a weekly care package for their employees. The Athenian was also recognised for launching a ‘Walk to Work scheme’, in which they paid their employees to walk to work, rather than getting public transport. Both awards commended The Athenian’s commitment and hard work in an extremely tough time, due to the pandemic.
In addition to The Athenian’s current operating sites in White City, Victoria, London Bridge, Canary Wharf and Bristol, Deliveroo Edition Kitchens have been added to the roster in Reading, Cambridge, Leeds, Nottingham, Brighton and most recently Birmingham (20th November).
