Fodor's Expert Review Aleria

$$$ Metaxourgeio Mediterranean

Restaurants, including this award-winning gem of neoclassical design and inventive Mediterranean cuisine, are one reason Metaxourgeio's star is rising. Chef Gikas Xenakis's cooking is a serious candidate for notoriety. Go for a nine-dish tasting menu or order a selection of gourmet dishes à la carte, with a menu that includes fresh fish (try the sauteed squid with marinated raisins and crispy rice), slow-cooked meats (such as the mouthwatering duck with celeriac puree and caramelized shallots), and succulent pasta dishes. Wine Wednesday is extremely popular and provides a perfect introduction to small Greek wine producers.
