A modern twist on classic Greek dining
Athens' restaurants scene has been transformed, thanks largely to a new generation of chefs, many trained abroad, whose creativity has fostered Greek cuisine’s renaissance. Where Greeks once equated ‘fine dining’ with French or Italian cuisine, today it’s Greek gastronomy that gets all the raves. Even simple traditional fare like fava (pureed split peas) has been elevated to a delicacy thanks to imaginative pairings with capers and spring onions, while obscure regional specialties have been rediscovered and elevated to haute cuisine.
