(Courtesy “The Fine Dining”) The first starred restaurant we had the honour to try on our trip to Greece was The Funky Gourmet. This restaurant is one of its kind, specialized in molecular cuisine. It is not only the taste, but also smells, colors, the food textures and sounds that make each dish unique. If you are new to molecular cuisine, prepare to be amazed, but also keep in mind that you won’t have a normal meal. This will be a journey discovering a completely new way of having food.
The building is located in the area of Keramikos, amidst various theatres, art galleries, sophisticated loft and neoclassical buildings.
On the upper floor you will be welcome by the two chefs – owners, Georgianna Hiliadaki and Nikos Roussos. Young, talented with a cosmopolitan view, graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education in New York, these two chefs create a modern, avant garde cuisine using techniques inspired by Georgianna’s stay at El Bulli.
Another thing that makes this place stand out is their offer of private cheffing; a transformation of catering into haute cuisine. How cool is that to have a chef preparing meals specifically to your party’s needs and wants?
In 2012 just after 2 years of restaurant operations, Funky Gourmet has been awarded with a Michelin star. Congratulations!
