Greece Dinner

Athens, December 12, 2013

A pre-Christmas dinner with a difference

For its traditional end of year event, the Bailliage organized a pre-Christmas dinner completely different from those in previous years!

The difference was the choice of the restaurant and cuisine as we dined at the world-class Japanese-style ‘Matsuhisa’ located within the Astir Palace Resort.

Matsuhisa Athens follows the concept created by the famous Chef Nobu Matsuhisa. It offers magnificent Japanese flavours in the cosmopolitan setting of Astir Palace with breath-taking views to the Aegean Sea.

A fantastic special menu had been selected by the resort’s owner, Chaîne member Tassos Ioannidis, in collaboration with the Bailliage officers.

The gastronomic ‘parade’ started with a glass of ‘bubbly’ while members and their guests socialised before taking their seat at the minimalist yet elegant tables. Seven remarkable courses were served – all being signature dishes of Matsuhisa – accompanied by seven matching Greek wines. The combination was an extraordinarily harmonious experience.

At the end of the dinner, Tassos Ioannidis was honoured with a special plaque and the kitchen brigade was formally (and enthusiastically) congratulated for the perfect result.
