How does Athens taste?
Updated: May 10
In 2004, Taste of London took the stage of the Somerset House as one of the ground-breaking events that heralded an era of advancements in the global gastronomy scene. Pass some fifteen years, and Athens brings the concept to its grounds. Taste of Athens gathers leading restaurants -some of which Michelin-star awarded - and from their own booths they serve special menus featuring signature dishes, and making sure they showcase the latest developments in the Athenian cuisine.
