The Greco's Project (Athens, Greece)
Mitropoleos 5, Athens 105 57, Greece
The Greco’s Project is a new hip restaurant that serves pretty basic Greek meat dishes - as well as burgers – but with high quality ingredients and in a modern style. Seems like the want to make a chain of it. This restaurant is just off Syntagma Square, so in the heart of the city. Despite the upscale presentation The Greco’s Project is a pretty straightforward restaurant with fast service
I get the Pork Gyros (€9.70), which is presented open. The pita is covered with a huge heap of shaved meats and on the side onions, tomato and tzatziki. The quality of the meat is exceptional, even if parts are a bit lukewarm, and the tzatziki is delicious and smooth.
This is some of the best gyros I have eaten, but it is ridiculously expensive (not just by Athens standards).
