artisanal

art is in.. grandma’s antique floral plates, homemade bread, handmade vintage furniture, John Forsythe, Linda Evans and Joan Collins. “artisanal”(meaning made by hand) is a cosy bar-restaurant housed in an early 20th century premium residence with rare trees and elegance of the 50’s. not just a fancy word.

lounge yourself and taste a freshly baked bread dipped in metsovone, anthotyro(traditional fresh cheese) and thyme cream, a colorful beetroot salad with goat cheese and raspberry dressing, a groovy grilled spinach pie with feta cheese cream and chive scented olive oil, some classy beef ravioli with salsify and Jerusalem artichoke(topinambour), some sensuous pumpkin gnocchi with mushrooms, a Greek sea scented octopus pastitsio with wakame seaweed and fava(yellow split peas puree) and a fine juicy pata negra pork loin with polenta, red cabbage puree and crispy pork bites. actually well crafted culinary works.
