Kuzina, one of Athens’ best restaurants, is located in the city’s picturesque and historical district of Thissio. Just outside its doors is an impressive view of the temple of Hephaestus and the Acropolis. Well known chef, Aris Tsanaklides, combines his knowledge of traditional Greek cuisine with international fusion influence, creating inventive dishes. The specialties include loukoumades with feta cheese, mint and pomegranate sauce, chick peas with caper leaves and fresh marinated tomatoes, Roys codfish, all in a menu which is renewed two or three times per year.
The restaurant’s interior feels like the living room of a well-to-do friend who has a love of shabby-chic decor. Shelves are stocked with alcohol and homemade preserves, the back room has an open floor with hundreds of wine bottles – an ode to the Greek guide of wine, Dionysus. Kuzina’s terrace is a favorite venue in town, with its idyllic atmosphere and views over the city. Don’t miss this establishment for a comfortable night of innovative cuisine and fun.
