Dreaming of a trip to Mykonos, while stuck toiling away in your cubicle? Lucky for you, the New York eat place Kellari opened its doors at 1700 K Street two weeks ago, ready to fulfill all your Greek needs without any of the airfare or time off.
I was invited to sample all the Greek fare during a tasting, and I’m happy to report, we’ve finally got a restaurant on K street that will stick. For the happy hour-er in you, Kellari offers fun cocktails at the bar, with limitless olives, and crackers and cheese. Take a seat, and indulge in fresh fish, which you can pick right off the raw bar in the center of the dining room. (I’d recommend the King Prawns from Madagascar, divine.) Sample some hummus with grilled bread to get started, pick yourself a fish, and round out the meal with some of the best baklava I’ve ever had.
In no time, you’ll be floating on the Aegean. At least in your mind.
