A sisyphean task refers to a job that is never done – like Sisyphus rolling a boulder up a hill, only to have it roll back down again. Trying to improve the image of Greek food in London can be a bit like that at times. For every innovative Aegean restaurant, or importer of exciting boutique wines, there will always be a neighbourhood restina and moussaka purveyors that have changed little in menu or wine list since the 1970s. But it’s possible to find leading lights of modern Greek food even in grey and drizzly London. Ergon is a forward-thinking Greek deli and restaurant serving cut-above modern mezédes and Greek wines, and you don’t have to travel to the ’burbs to find it – it’s right next to Selfridges.
