Grande Dame Athenian Tavern


2 Reviews



Grande Dame opened its doors on the ground floor of a historic neoclassical building on Nikis Street, which was once an inn and in recent years housed the Old Athens tavern. The interior was dismantled, renovated and acquired a different style. The old tile that you have under your feet is more than a century old, the tables are spread in three rooms with different lamps, some vintage, others more modern, tables with ladies - say the ladies - and vases with fresh flowers.

The fact that the space moves between the old and the new, mixing elements of both, somehow reflects the style of food. Giannis Solakis captures Greek cuisine from his own scope returning to well-known dishes of the old urban restaurants and utilizing techniques and materials from some other traditions that he learned and assimilated along the way. He talks about a "modern Greek cuisine that looks back". Already from the velvet taramosalata with ouzo, which comes sprinkled with almond fillet and the fragrant, although a little more tight hummus, with crispy chickpea (nice touch) and pomegranate, I understand what it means. It is captured even more by its original Athenian, with lettuce and chopped potato, peas, carrot, in raw mayonnaise. The Her fish is sea bass marinated with sugar and salt in the logic of gravlax, but again it keeps its character, you know immediately what you are eating. If she takes you, following a different path, at his tables in the past, the beluga lentil salad with quinoa, lightly cooked bonito, crispy fried noodles and a dressing with lime pickle are in tune with his taste habits now.
