Athiri’s lovely garden courtyard is a verdant surprise in this pocket of Keramikos. The small but innovative menu plays on Greek regional classics, with seasonal specialities. This might include Santorini fava and hearty beef stew with myzithra (sheep’s-milk cheese) and handmade pasta from Karpathos.
