From Thanasis Vassilenas’ humble taverna – born in the impoverished neighbourhoods of 1920s Piraeus  – to a modern, cosmopolitan restaurant in the heart of Athens on Vrasida Street.

A culinary story that spans one hundred years.

A journey filled with the memories and flavours of family recipes that continue to inspire our cuisine today.
