Guide Review - Hytra Restaurant, Athens

Hytra opened prior to the Olympics in a flurry of post-taverna-era restaurant openings. Chef Yiannis Baxevanis stays close to his Cretan roots - sometimes literally - providing dishes featuring traditional ingredients that are hard to find on other menus, and nearly impossible to find brought so firmly and finely into the 21st century. A spread of mezes will feed two or three people well and costs about 70 Euro, an excellent introduction to the varied ingredients and preparation methods used here.
