Grekos: A Thriving Greek Restaurant in the Heart of Rome

Nostalgia is a Greek word, and after living in Greece and countless journeys there for work or pleasure, nostalgia can be your companion whenever something evokes anything Greek. So here in Rome I started the search for a Greek taverna – there weren’t that many in the early 10’s – that could at least give me back some of the flavours that I was missing. That’s when I met Frantzis Kakias, then the chef at the Greek restaurant Ippokrates (he’s from Kos, so the name of the most famous person ever from the island was absolutely fitting). We became friends almost immediately, so I was very happy for him when he opened his own restaurant, Grekos. The success has been immense, so much that he opened another one just a few months back. If you’re ever in Rome, Grekos guarantees an authentic Greek culinary experience. Don’s miss it!
