How to Eat Well in Athens – Choice Tables – NYTimes.com

Eirini Vourloumis for The New York Times OVERSHADOWED by those shameless epicurean showboats Paris, Barcelona and Rome, Athens sometimes overreacts, responding with an ambition so fervent it verges on the poignant. I know: I’ve been a victim of it. Athenian after Athenian has tugged me out to this or that sleekly designed room with boldly geometric plates upon which intricately stacked food teeters.

Lo de Jesus

I SEE TRAVEL AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO TRY AS MANY DIFFERENT RESTAURANTS AS POSSIRLE. I want to know what’s cooking throughout every neighborhood I visit, so I rarely eat at the same place twice.
