ManiMani: Dining out in Acropolis

Jan 21st 2014 at 7:59 PM

Modern Mani and other interesting dishes in a beautiful neoclassical near the Acropolis.

This item: At the beginning of the road Faliro, a few minutes walk from the Acropolis Museum.

The atmosphere: The restaurant, which this year celebrates eight years of operation during November, hosted in a beautiful neoclassical building, from those found in abundance around the Acropolis. The ManiMani is divided into rooms, so there is a certain sense of privacy, even though, as a restaurant, is not small. As for decoration, retains a minimalist aesthetic with ... Mani manner, dominated pastel colors (beige, brown wood, oil) and simple decoration, which changes from time to time, remaining faithful to the same Doric pattern.

The food: Since the beginning of operation of the restaurant, the goal of chef Alexander FUROYL was to establish in the world the simple but extremely intense flavors Mani, adapting them as little as possible in mainstream requirements. The weapons, in addition to technical, undoubtedly possesses the high quality raw material, mostly from Mani. Sometimes, however, the raw material refuses to rise to the occasion, depriving the perfect 10s from an otherwise excellent meal.

This happened on our last visit to the restaurant with syglino, which, without being evil, devoid of the characteristic smoky flavor, this just makes this so special sausage. Obviously, and if we tried several times to great syglino ManiMani, the discussion turns back around the reliability of suppliers and stability in quality, which is essential to develop standardization and export, so we need as a country.

Account: About 15 euros per person, without wine. As the 6misi afternoon in most dishes there is the option 'Half Portion - Half Price "which enables anyone visiting the restaurant for the first time to try more flavors.

The cellar : Small but dynamic, with good Greek wine selections, good prices and can choose glass on some labels. At this point I can only observe that the glasses, the choices are not only among relatively inexpensive wines, but wines include claims such wonderful xinomavro "Earth and Sky" winemaking Thymiopoulos.
