the growing family tree..

Greek-Italian ancestry means nothing but “trouble” and will inevitably lead to one thing(or two); tasty cooking and masterful culinary skills! Mr. Dimitris Papazimouris was just a normal managing director(and still is) of an advertising agency until he decided to open up to us, starting his own blog a deconstructed and reformed family crest as a logo), spreading around his knowledge and experiences! kinda like a beginner’s guide. and then it happened; his own, fully booked, weekend pop-up restaurant hosted at “common secret cafe“.

there you can taste an authentic “harry’s bar” carpaccio creation, some grandma’s meatballs with yogurt sauce, a fine tartare with crispy fries, an ambrosial smoked paprika seasoned veal liver(bralos farm), some traditionally flavored stuffed cabbage rolls aka lahanodolmades, some comforting lasagna alla bolognese and finally a rich 80 day aged black angus rib steak(bralos farm of course). Mr. Papazimouris stated that the perfect aging temperature should be around 0-2 degrees Celsius and that a 45-day aging is just about enough.
