Let’s talk about Parla
Captained by Thodoris Papanikolaou – the gastro-genius who brought us such sophisticated tastes at Sense Fine Dining at AthensWas – Parla has just taken up residence in a charming aristocratic dwelling in Kifissia (next door to Cava Vinifera).
Lovers of top-notch Italian cuisine (and face it, isn’t that pretty much everyone?) will find much to delight their palate on a menu which champions the fulsome flavours of the Tuscany and Emilia Romagna regions through a repertoire of home-made pastas, meat and fish dishes and Papanikolaou’s trademark avant-garde creations. Go to enjoy simply superb food in a stylish setting and during the summer season, try to snare a table in the dreamy garden courtyard. Esteemed bar-star Andreas Dimitropoulos has crafted an Italian-tilted cocktail list that you’ll want to get on friendly terms with, especially the spicy Ciao Bello! As the name suggests, newcomer Parla has given Athens’ foodies much to talk about!
