The MICHELIN Guide Athens 2022 has just been revealed, with one new Two Michelin star restaurant, two new One Michelin star restaurants, and plenty more receiving a high distinction in various categories.
“The Greek capital features one new Two Michelin Star restaurant as well as two restaurants receiving a Star for the first time. Two restaurants stand out with their commitment in terms of sustainability and thus receive the Michelin Green Star. Seven new establishments have been referenced, thus bringing the selection to a total of 27 restaurants,” announced the Michelin Guide.
First new entry to the 2022 Michelin Guide with a Two Star edition is Delta, which “stands out with its breathtaking avant-garde esthetics, at the heart of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center. Chefs George Papazacharias and Thanos Feskos, who both boast experience in Northern countries, offer gastronomic suggestions that combine Scandinavian concepts and culinary techniques with local products, with the common theme being environmental sustainability,” says the Michelin Guide team.
Two Newly Awarded Restaurants That Received One Michelin Star
Soil, which is located in the Pangrati district and “offers a charming terrace, harbors the cuisine of Chefs Tasos Mantis and Alexandros Mouridis. The name “Soil” is a clear indication of the philosophy behind the establishment, which aims to be close to its territory, mindful of food sustainability and a fervent supporter of the “Farm to table” approach.”
Along with The Zillers, “without a doubt a highly unique restaurant, since it is located on the rooftop of the Zillers Boutique Hotel, meaning guests can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Acropolis and the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Annunciation. With its flexible offer, one can enjoy a light, casual lunch or a full-fledged gastronomic dinner from Chef Pavlos Kiriakis.”
