Food.Fun.Stuff: Kellari Taverna Opens This Fall

[ 0 ] September 10, 2009 |

Now this is what DC needs more of…Greek food. In addition to really good Italian spots, Greek food is another cuisine that needs more presence in the DMV. K st. will now welcome Greek restaurant, Kellari Taverna (*Kellari=Wine Cellar in Greek), which will feature traditional Greek fare alongside lots-o-lots of wine. The restaurant is set to open its doors in early October with a seafood display in the middle of the dining room in addition to Greek specialities such as lithrini and fagri. Owner, Stavros Aktipis, has two other restaurants in New York with Greek seafood as the focus. We welcome Kellari Taverna to the area and are hoping it won’t follow in the footsteps of those that came before it…remember this is the same location that Restaurant K and Jimmy’s on K st. flopped…let’s hope for the best!
