Concierge.com's insider take:
That mouthful means "flavors of designated origin" (like D.O.C. on an Italian wine label), and it translates into mouthfuls of divinely fresh, beyond-authentic food from chef Jim Pissias. Every item arrives on the menu direct from its (named) source, and arrives on your plate intact, rather than mushed into overcooked stews. Dishes include fresh-grilled sardine fillets served with baked tomatoes and a caper-parsley sauce; fava beans from Santorini served with carmelized spring onions, olives, and mint-lime sauce. The restaurant occupies a gracious, antique-bedecked 19th-century Kifissia villa.
Open Monday through Saturday 8 pm to 11:30 pm.
