This new modern Greek restaurant has enlisted two of Greece's top chefs to create the menu Athinagoras Kostakos, executive head chef at Bill, Coo Mykonos (and who did a guest stint at the Capital hotel) and George Venieris, executive head chef at the roof garden restaurant at the Electra Palace Hotel in Athens. It has a deli and outside seating and offer authentic Greek produce like lobster with orzo pasta, and warm feta pastries marinated in honey and black sesame.
