Bacchus Reborn

Fokionos 2, Syntagma; +30 21 0323 9406
Greek vintners may not have the reputation of their counterparts in France and Italy, but it’s not for lack of experience: the country has been a center of Mediterranean winemaking since 2000 B.C. and in the past 30 years, the industry has experienced a real renaissance. Want to taste for yourself? Head to Heteroclito, a hip new Athenian wine bar which specializes in Greek varietals (such as the dry white, assyrtiko and spicy red, xinomavro) and offers wine by the glass from the most innovative and acclaimed local producers.

Taverna Time

Negri 1, Athina 117 43, Greece; +30 21 0921 3500
Skip the usual taverna tourist traps and head to Trapezaria–a new bistro perched just a stone’s throw from the Acropolis where the sophisticated, seasonal Greek food and convivial, rustic-chic decor make both locals and visitors feel at home. The carefully crafted menu changes frequently, but some favorites–like the homemade gnocchi with braised octopus and roasted duck “gyros”–are always sure to please.
