After 25 years at the edge of the caldera in Santorini, Selene, one of the island's premier restaurants, has moved to the traditional village of Pyrgos. Owner Yiorgos Hatziyannakis says the move has brought him closer to the farms and vineyards whose produce he has long championed and made a focal point of Selene's award-winning menus. The new location, in a 19th-century mansion, is shared with a folk museum illustrating how that produce—cherry tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, fava beans, grapes—traditionally was grown and prepared. Dinners, perhaps sea bass with fava risotto or piglet with orange comfit and apple purée, are served on the mansion's terrace or beneath the vaulted ceiling of the dining room. If that seems overly formal, the wine bar and café downstairs serves—along with salads, sandwiches, and a selection of Cycladic cheeses—some of the island's best burgers and fries.—Bob Payne

Open daily 7 to 11:30 pm, April through October.
