Description

Historians, philosophers and foodies alike have a historic love for the iconic city of Athens. Home to some of the world's most important archeological sites, the Greek capital has an international reputation as the home of democracy; and now Athens is re-emerging as a gastronomic destination for far more contemporary fare.

Nestled in a neoclassical building in Keramikos, amidst theatres, galleries and modern urban lofts, Funky Gourmet Restaurant opened its doors in 2009. In 2012 the restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star, and two years later it received its second.

In the warm ambiance of the restaurant, you'll savour a degustation menu inspired by unique local ingredients and seasonality. Specialising in molecular cuisine, owners Georgianna Hiliadaki and Nikos Roussos aspire to a refined version of Greek cuisine.

Young, beautiful and talented, these two chefs use inspired modern techniques to present works of art, with a touch of humour and theatricality. Each dish is meticulously put together with ingredients that uniquely complement each. 'The Greek salad' is one of the restaurant’s signature dishes, and features the usual suspects including cucumbers, tomatoes, feta and capers - but here, they are blended, strained, frozen and presented as a kind of mouth-watering sorbet.

Guests can then enjoy even more Greek gastronomic genius on the second evening at Michelin-starred, Hytra. In the warmer months, the restaurant offers outdoor seating with a panoramic views of the Acropolis, Lycabaceum Hill and the city skyline.

Hytra has developed its culinary character based on the redefinition of Greek cuisine. The restaurant has retained its michelin star under the care of Chef Tassos Mantis, whose dishes are crafted and presented in contemporary fashion. The highly technical recipes are offered in an 8 course-tasting menu paired with wine. Guests can look forward to exotic dishes of quail, chestnut and fresh truffle finished with xinotyri- a local Naxos Island cheese.

Between michelin-starred extravaganzas, refresh your appetite by setting off to relive the classical past with a visit to the Acropolis Museum. The museum was built to house artifacts from the Greek Bronze Age, Roman and Byzantine Greece.
