EDITORS COMMENTS
Welcome to the White Tower, a legendary restaurant nestled in the heart of Bloomsbury, London since 1939. This photograph, taken in 1966, captures the essence of an era long past, as John and Eileen Stais' establishment continued to thrive during the swinging sixties. The White Tower was renowned for its authentic Greek and Macedonian dishes, drawing in a diverse crowd of Londoners and visitors alike. The restaurant's distinctive white facade, adorned with the iconic tower, stood proudly on Percy Street, beckoning guests to indulge in the rich flavors and warm hospitality within. As you step through the doors of the White Tower, you are greeted by the uniformed doormen, their stern yet welcoming expressions setting the tone for an unforgettable dining experience. The restaurant's interior exuded an air of sophistication and elegance, with its polished wooden tables, crisp white tablecloths, and the soft glow of flickering candles. At the helm of the kitchen was Commissaire, the restaurant's esteemed chef, who had mastered the art of creating traditional Greek and Macedonian dishes that left a lasting impression on all who dined there. The aroma of spices and herbs wafted through the air, mingling with the sounds of lively conversation and laughter, creating an atmosphere that was both inviting and intoxicating. This photograph is a snapshot of a bygone era, a time when dining out was an event to be savored and remembered. The White Tower, with its unwavering commitment to authenticity and excellence, remained a cherished institution in London's culinary landscape for generations, and continues to inspire and delight food lovers to this day.
