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 reasonably priced, three-course prix-fixe menu. 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 the 12-hour slow-roasted pork with lemon and basil sauce. Whether you sit outside on the street, in the spectacular main dining room, or 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.
