The Prytaneion proclaims that all the shellfish that it serves is caught daily by its own deep sea diver. Found in a narrow pedestrian street just off Kolonaki Square, it manages to be trendy (stone walls and baby spotlights) but still have the cozy atmosphere of a neighborhood hangout. Nooks and crannies hide quiet conversations over plates of mezedes, long bars invite long drinks, and glass-topped tables make for elegant sit-down lunches or dinners. Since the neighborhood is fashionable Kolonaki, some of Athens' most expensive and eclectic mezedes, including beef carpaccio, smoked salmon, bruschetta, and shrimp in fresh cream are available—as well as that perennial international favorite, the hamburger. Portions are usually big, even by generous Greek standards. There's also a location in suburban Kifissia.
