look what the wind brought in..

Aiolou 68

a modern version of Aeolus -the god and ruler of the winds- wandering around downtown Athens, looking for some good old surf ‘n’ turf. “Aiolou 68″(named after the famous shopping street) is a minimal, island style soothing space, serving some of the most interesting seafood delicacies around. Vasilis Akrivos(also “psariston“restaurant owner and chef) knows best.
