The days are growing longer, and the temperature is gradually rising, preparing us for the joys of summer and its favorite beverage: beer. Cool and refreshing with little alcohol, and with a variety of aromas, flavors and colors depending on whether you choose dark, red or blonde – beer is the perfect choice to accompany any of our dishes, noon or night.
FOR EVERY TASTY DISH – A BEER TO GO WITH IT
Inspired by the “weight”, the “intensity” and the “piquancy” of various beers, we created a menu of accompanying dishes which, together with their companion beers, complete the experience of tasting pleasure. For example, you can enjoy salmon with a beer glaze and renowned Portobello mushrooms seasoned with chorizo – together with a blond Belgian Ale. Lamb Noisette sautéed in a breaded malt batter containing chocolate and coffee goes perfectly with a Stout or Porter with a creamy head, heavy or light according to your preference. Pork loin with barley malt extract and thick macaroni pasta pairs nicely with a red Ale, while Lager is the perfect complement to octopus or squid with fava-bean puree. For dessert, try a brownie with Madagascar vanilla ice-cream with beer….naturally.
FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH OF MAY AT FAMOUS BISTROT VIENΝΑ
Taste and aesthetics come together in space that is at once beautiful, open, generous and comfortable,
served by the impeccably discreet staff of the InterContinental. In this welcoming setting, Bistrot Vienna presents a month of beer-inspired dishes that will make for an unforgettable lunch or dinner.
Inspired by the rich gastronomic traditions of Thailand, Bistrot Vienna has created a mouth-watering menu dedicated to Thai cuisine. Throughout the entire month of April, you can explore Thai tastes and combinations prepared by the restaurant’s chefs – featuring: rice, tapioca, rice noodles, exotic mango and Chinese cabbage – all cooked and seasoned to go perfectly with chicken, shrimp, beef and cod and to bring out their most delicious essence.
The flavors of Thailand
Thai cuisine, heavily influenced by traditional Chinese gastronomy, is characterized by the way in which dishes are cooked – usually steamed or stir-fried in in a wok – and by the rich variety of ingredients, featuring: rice, sugarcane, tapioca, soya and sesame, which is one of their chief exports.
And for dessert…
After your meal, you can enjoy a sweet tapioca pudding with fresh coconut milk, mango and pineapple. And this tasty journey for your senses will last all of April in the splendid atmosphere of Bistrot Vienna.
The Athenaeum InterContinental Athens celebrates Easter according to all the customs and dictates of tradition in the Hotel’s most warm and welcoming space – the renowned Cafezoe.
Either before or just after midnight, come break your fast with us by cracking red eggs together and sampling the traditional mayeritsa soup – followed by an abundance of delicious treats from the restaurant’s rich buffet. Come raise a glass of wine or beer and hail family and friends with the Easter greeting: “Christ is risen! True is the Lord!” and all together wish for a rebirth of hope, love and joy.
The table is set and ready, as befits any Sunday, but on this particular Sunday, the most important in the Orthodox faith, red-dyed eggs and sweet tsoureki bread command the center of the table, and the atmosphere is filled with the wonderful smell of roast lamb and other appetizers and side dishes. Joyful traditional music adds to the festive mood, which was already lifted by the restaurant’s warm welcome and complimentary glass of ouzo. And while our own spirits soar, our children can enjoy their own moments of carefree fun with the experienced educators and entertainers of Kidarte.
Fasting during the forty days of Lent can officially be broken on only two days, and only for fish, on the 25th of March (Annunciation) and on Palm Sunday. On the day of the Annunciation, seafood surrenders its place to the traditional dish for this day - codfish accompanied by garlic purée.
On the day of the Annunciation, Cafezoe invites us all to a delicious celebration
At Cafezoe, we have drawn inspiration from tradition and have created a menu rich in flavors for every taste. As an opening course, traditional salads such as the famous fish-roe salad (taramosalata), pureed fava beans and eggplant salad – as well as “Athenian” salad with fish, beets and octopus salad all whet our appetite for the hot dishes which follow: fish and seafood, codfish and garlic purée, calamari with lemon, squid in wine sauce as well as dishes for those who aren’t fasting over Lent – roast chicken with hilopites (diced egg noodles) and veal with wine and vegetables. And the sweet finale includes the obligatory semolina halva, baklava, walnut cake, Greek doughnuts and numerous other selections that you will probably find hard to resist.
Keeping the celebration happy and festive with Kidarte
Happy children = happy parents. For Cafezoe’s younger guests, taste treats come with fun and games. Kidarte’s professionals specialize in providing creative entertainment for children that capture and keep their interest for the whole time our guests are celebrating here with us.
