One of the best restaurants in Greece.
Haven’t even eaten there but it looks like cat food
January 26, 2019Tonight, my partner and friend Melissa and I had the pleasure of having dinner with our friend and business partner Dimitiris and his wife Marina. Melissa and I had decided that we wanted to try every Michelin star rated restaurant in Athens over a year ago. Some we’ve been to multiple times but for whatever the reason was we hadn’t yet made it to Spondi, for those of you not aware Spondi has to it’s credit 2 Michelin stars.To tell you that we were all looking forward to this dinner would be a gross understatement. We arrived at the appointed time and once we were seated I decided to look at the wine menu. There were wonderful selections from all over the world and being that I have an extensive cellar of my own I had to rule out a bunch for no other reason then price. However, I’m familiar with the wines of Sicily so the decision on what wine to order was easy, I selected a Donnafugata, which happened to be delightful. We decided we’d start with a bunch of different appetizers and we’d share all of them. We selected the Langoustine served with a Petrosian Daurenki caviar, watermelon radish and calamondin. The dish was very creative however the langoustine was served very under cooked. We also shared the Scallops served with cauliflower, chive and Arenkha, (Arenkha is like caviar but is made from black herring roe.) Again, another pretty dish but not what you’d expect at a 2-star restaurant. The next presentation turned out to be the run-away star of the night it was the Truffle, on top of a wild mushroom, potato chestnut base served with an egg yoke on top. If we only had this for our dinner it would have been memorable, but we didn’t. The last presentation was now being consumed and I was secretly hoping that it was going to be better than the truffle it was my favorite choice, the Foie Gras with spices, chocolate and orange. Candidly it was a disaster it looked lovely but once you took in a bit of each on your fork you were overwhelmed by the bitter chocolate that had to be eaten with every mouthful. However, we still had hope, that the entrees would be something special to write about.The entrees were the Wild Turbot served with corn, Shimeji, (mushrooms,) and lemongrass. Again, another one of those pretty dishes but lacking. The second entrée was the Sea Bass served with Date Mussels, zucchini, calamari and lemon thyme. Like the prior dish it looked good but was adequate at best. The 3rd entrée was outstanding almost as good as the Truffle; this entrée was worth the price of admission it was the Veal Sweetbread served with carrots with hint of ginger and Yuzu along with wild leaves. The final main course was the milk fed lamb with eggplant, harissa, and a soya sesame sauce. Forgetting the lamb was over cooked there isn’t much else I can add.The smartest decision we made all night so far was to get a 2nd bottle of the Donnafugata and to have a 3rd course which was cheese. The cheese cart was wheeled over, and the cheese selection looked wonderful, the only faux pas was they finally brought us warm bread when we were basically done with the cheese, it’s all about timing. We then shared a couple of deserts which in all candor were non-de script. Candidly speaking we were disappointed, when you considered the truffle and Sweetbreads you could see the talent in the kitchen was there, but then to have some of the other offerings made no sense. A 2-star Michelin restaurant can have an off night it can happen but this was not a good one at all, I’m sorry to say.
