Παρουσίαση του Διόνυσος Zonar’ s στο TIME MAGAZINE
Great Greek Eats
by JEFF ISRAELY

In Athens, all that famous rubble makes for some pricey tourist traps. But the city's love of fresh ingredients means that at least you can eat well on the cheap. The best way to navigate the Greek capital's range of dining options is to diversify, so here's a cross-section of the gastronomical layers worth discovering.

Perched on a hillside, Dionysos Zonar's restaurant (www.dionysoszonars.gr) has an expansive patio facing the Acropolis — the view alone is worth the price of a drink. But it pays to stay for dinner and choose from a menu of subtly updated traditional Greek cuisine. The sampling of appetizers I ordered included a smoky roasted eggplant salad and whipped tarama with a peppery tanginess. The baby lamb chops — with a touch of thyme and oregano — were divine. And the local desserts of ekmek (bread-and-butter pudding) and kaimaki ice cream (flavored with mastic) made for a refreshing end to the meal. Cost per person (without wine): $75.
