Balthazar Athens Lenasblackbook

Athens’ most iconic garden is now open for the summer season.
Revived by all means with 2 gastronomical propositions and endless space for cocktails and socializing, it seems that this summer Balthazar will be gaining all the lost ground of the past 3 years.
Famous Greek chef Christoforos Peskias has signed the new menus which are a pleasant deja vu .
Creative Mediterranean cuisine with light dishes that have stayed true to Balthazar’s ID but also have evolved, offering a more than satisfactory dinner on a summery evening.

For the sushi lovers there is a Freud Oriental menu and restaurant at the back garden, kind of “a restaurant in restaurant thing”

The piece de resistance: The sweet creations by patissier Dionysis Alertas.

We liked:
The Thai prawn ceviche
The meatballs

We loved: The desserts, especially the dark chocolate with pepperoncino. A must try .

We ask for:
More options on quality wines by the glass
More good looking people…

After all it is Athens’ most people watching garden.
