Fodor's Review

The epicurean owners of "Ancient Flavors" combed through texts and archaeological records in an effort to recreate foods eaten in antiquity—not to mention how they were eaten, with spoon and knife only. Dishes like pancetta seasoned with thyme, stuffed suckling pig (which must be specially ordered two days in advance), and squid cooked in its ink prove, if anything, the continuity between ancient and modern Greek cuisine. There's an undeniable kitsch factor in the setting, but it is a unique experience to enjoy at least once.
