offering to gods..

Spondi

good eats have always been highly appreciated, even by gods. imagine if it’s a two michelin starred one! linen textiles, baccarat crystals, porcelain dinnerware; pure elegance. “spondi’s”(means offer to gods) altar is situated in a renovated neoclassical villa, right in the heart of Athens, near the famous panathenaic stadium, since 1996.

there you can choose between two menus(initiation and discovery) or you can do your own à la carte thing. first, you will get an idea of chef Aggelos Lantos’ thoughts from the complimentary smoked milk croquettes and the beetroot mousse with raspberry, mustard ice cream and cereals crust. “mouth amusers” indeed! then you can have a refined langoustine tartare with caviar, grapefruit, gentian and ground elder, a creamy palatable potato foam with caramelized onions, truffle and egg yolk, some alternative red mullets filled with black olive paste and eggplant puree and a heavenly sea bass with a zesty lime beurre blanc sauce.

ok, grand cru term is unofficially used to describe a top quality product(other than wine). now imagine a chocolate grand cru! a mild, milky jivara with crunchy caramelized hazelnuts and a refreshing mango sorbet. remember, gulping down your food ain’t no courteous behavior!
