Pano Karatassos swears that the massive meal he’s thrown together on a random Tuesday is simply “homestyle food that you would find at a Greek household.” Perhaps, but Karatassos also happens to be Atlanta restaurant royalty who helms the wildly popular Kyma in Buckhead.
Athens Pizza has been in Sandy Papadopoulos’s family for 50 years and he’s celebrating—first with a party at the restaurant on Saturday and later with a new Greek and Mediterranean spot called Karv. Set to open in 2017, Karv is a partnership with Nicholas Sousounis, Kyma’s general manager, and will serve “old-school recipes centered around the rotisserie.”
One of the easiest and healthiest fish techniques is cooking en papillote, in which fillets are wrapped in parchment to steam in a hot oven. Stuff the parchment packets with sliced vegetables or rice for a complete meal.
Nothing makes me as anxious as ordering seafood in restaurants. I must look like a nutjob when I play twenty questions with a server, who more than likely has no clue about the exact provenance and life cycle of the fish or shellfish. At the very least, I need to know whether those shrimp and that salmon are domestic, imported, wild-caught, or farm-raised. And I can't just have an oyster po'boy, either. "What kind of oysters?" I whine.
