One of Athens's most intensely designed temples to great food is justly celebrated as a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds. One salon shimmers with arty Swarovski chandeliers, walls of hot pink and cool aubergine, and chic black leather couches; for less glamour opt for the white-linen vaulted room, a beige-on-beige sanctorum; or, in summer, chill in the vast, bougainvillea-draped courtyard. No matter where you sit, you'll be able to savor the transcendentally delicious creations of chef Michel del Burgo, who has arrived with the aim to help two-star Spondi finally win its coveted third Michelin star. Highlights of their mostly French-inspired Mediterranean menu include the pan-fried foie gras with rice popcorn, date, and vanilla; the scallops with edamame and wasabi ice cream; and the duck with turnip, bok choy, and cocoa. Or you can try the five-course "Discovery" tasting menu accompanied by selected Greek wines. For dessert, try the Alpaco chocolate from Equador. You may wish to opt for a taxi ride out to Pangrati—but isn't one of the best meals in all of Greece worth it?
