Further to the success of Papoutsis’ idea, he joined up with Scott Collins, who he met in a car park in Peckham in 2010, to create Meateasy in an abandoned pub in New Cross in January 2011. This restaurant stayed open for four months before both Papoutsis and Collins opened their first permanent site in November 2011 near Oxford Circus.
