Executive chef and restaurateur, Giannis Leontarakis, rejoices the Greek culture with his version of an Authentic Greek Cuisine stemming from the finest Hellenic ingredients and traditional methods of cooking. Pithari is his elucidation of the Greek ethnicity, customs, and way of life reflected within every dish.
We purchase fresh fish and meat directly from Greek importers daily. Ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and rough grade sea salt are all displayed in their original forms on each table as a reminder to the Greek tradition I wish to capture in every single dish.
The secret behind the delicious cuisine we have created begins with ingredients such as organic oregano grown wild in the outskirts of the Island of Thassos, the basil imported from a farming square 20 miles west of Salonika, milk and cheese from mainland sold exclusive to us and my interpretation as an executive chef to synthesize the elements to the utmost satisfaction of our patrons.
