Become who you are




Christmas is coming to Athens





And then,
after I just stored away my sandals
and wore my trench coat again,
Christmas came to town. 

As I was walking home one evening,
there it was, 
beautifully catered, 
the shop from where I get our godchildren their Easter candles, 
all dressed up 
for
Christmas.

Oh Christmastime, be nice to me,
bring me 
Love 
and Warmth, and my 
heart's desire

Visiting Athens: Zonar's-Vienna sweet life meets Parisian chic.







Zonar's is the most iconic café in Athens
I have always loved visiting beacause of its impeccable service and its olde Athens atmosphere. 
It has recently been renovated and it is even warmer and more welcoming. 
I had a freshly squeezed grapefruit juice which was so refreshing,
I had a quiet discussion 
and I had the time to have a look at the art and general atmospher vreated by the warm wood , the architectural and decorative details and the touches of  early 20th century deco. 
Outside, Athens looked so much more beautiful, with a touch of 
Vienna sweet life with Parisian chic.

The story of Zonars begins in August ’39 when it was first introduced in the corner of Panepistimiou and Voukourestiou. Today, 75 years later, history is being rewritten, with the two brothers Spyros and Chrysanthos Panas undertaking the management to reopen the historic Zonars and reintroducing to the public Classic Greek Recipes of the historic restaurant as well as adding new dishes to the menu.

The historic place hosted over the years in its elegant and luxurious environment, many of the greatest personalities of the last century as Odysseas Elytis, Nikos Gatsos, Manos Hatzidakis, Melina Mercouri, Sophia Loren, Anthony Quinn and many others
