Kuzina Review

Sleek, dazzlingly decorated, and moodily lit, this bistro attracts many style-conscious Athenians. But Kuzina isn't just a pretty face. The food—especially the inventive seafood and pasta dishes concocted by chef Aris Tsanaklides—is among the best in Athens, standing out on touristy Adrianou. Happily, the decor is almost as attractive as the two three-course prix-fixe menus. Past an outdoor table setting, the main room soars skyward, glittering with birdcage chandeliers and factory ducts, with a vast lemon-yellow bar set below a spotlighted wall lined with hundreds of wine bottles. The menu showcases newfangled Greek as well as old faves, including tuna tataki with caper leaves, krittamo and wamake seaweed; yellow split-pea puree from Santorini with caper leaves and tomato; and slow-roasted pork seasoned with lime, green apple, and cucumber. Whether you sit outside on the street, in the spectacular main dining room, or opt for a table on the roof (the Tarazza offers a fantastic view of the Acropolis and some tasty cocktails), finish your meal off with a delicious dessert such as the white-chocolate mousse with strawberries and rose meringue.
