#About the First Michelin Star Restaurant in Greece

The Varoulko restaurant, not only considered one of the most expensive in Athens, is also one of the highest quality in Athens. It is located on Piraeus Avenue in central Athens. You will find authentic fish and seafood dishes, freshly baked fish in the oven, fish soup, grilled octopus salad, probably due to its proximity to the sea and its quality raw materials. The desserts in the restaurant are amazing.

An interesting story is about the chef of the restaurant, Lefteris Lazarou. His father was a cook on a Greek fishing boat and gave his son the special love for cooking and fish in particular. Lefteris went to study in Italy and when he returned he set up a small restaurant on the water in Piraeus. After moving to several different neighborhoods, the restaurant won one Michelin star. The great advantage of Varoulko stems naturally from its proximity to the sea and the quality raw materials that come from it.

In the first years, the restaurant won publicity, especially thanks to squid soup with leeks prepared by the talented chef and thanks to the Kalamari dish in Pesto. But in addition to the octopus and squid soup, you'll find plenty of great fish and seafood dishes here. Freshly baked sea fish, excellent fish soup, grilled octopus salad and similar dishes are also served here, mostly based on the Piraeus fisherman's sea. Along with all these, the desserts in the restaurant are tasty and some will even say amazing.

Peter Luger Steak House
#About the Best Stake in New York

The Peter Luger Steak House is a well-known steak house in Brooklyn, with 1 Mechlin Star displayed out front. Many consider this restaurant the best stakes in New York.

Peter Luger is under the Brooklyn Bridge, and even for the expensive menu, every day thousands of customers eat here.

If your budget is limited, go right to the dreamy Porthouse slices (must order the one for two). Not only are they huge in their size and grilled with expertise, but the Porthouse also served here are well proportioned, and receive winning care by cooks and waiters, who pour butter and fat on top. To make a long story short, you have arrived in heaven for carnivores. Enjoy!

#Tips for Peter Luger

Order a dish for two - have you noticed that Americans tend to be a little large? The dishes here are the same way. So in many restaurants, it's enough to order one dish and share between two people. Soft drinks also usually arrive in really large sizes.

Order a table a week in advance - even with the high prices, Peter Luger is very popular. You must reserve a table at least a week in advance, and during high tourists season, you should even aim for one month in advance!

Do not burn the steak - don't dare order anything 'well done,' this is how you will ruin the flagship dish. We do not recommend a stake for one person. It is significantly less tasty because it is made out of a different cut of meat.
