Fodor's Review

Athenian trend-watchers are so enthusiastic about the gritty-cool neighborhood of Metaxourgeio that they say it will soon be like Paris's boho-chic Marais district. Restaurants, including this award-winning gem of neoclassic design and inventive Mediterranean cuisine, are one reason the area's star is rising. Chef Gikas Xenakis's cooking is a serious candidate for future notoriety, while young restaurateur Nikoforos Kehayiadakis will be the perfect host for your evening.

Try the seafood orzo risotto with grilled peppers, salami, and basil, or the slow-cooked pork belly with celery root puree, coriander sauce, and onion pickles. Wine Wednesday is extremely popular and provides a perfect introduction to small Greek wine producers, combined with eclectic tastes from the menu (at an extremely affordable fixed price). You'll undoubtedly agree that the restaurant is stylish yet scrumptious.
