"Exactly what Greece needs"

We visited Spondi twice in the past. Both times we left feeling astonished that this level of cooking was taking place in Greece. It was happy times when Spondi went from 1 Michelin star to 2. But then, there were some changes going on. Its star chef Arnaud Bignon, protégée of the 3* star Eric Frechon, left. Greece's financial turbulence got to him. He moved on, to the Greenhouse in London and put it on top of its game by gaining a second star in just a few months! After Arnaud's departure, the names of some decorated 3* chefs were supposed to replace him, only to create some confusion about the future of the restaurant. To cut a long story short, Spondi bounce back and still has 2 shiny stars on its belt. Arnaud's sous chef, Aggelos Lantos proved to be a worthy successor and a chef to look out for. It seems that Arnaud was not only a talented chef but an effective teacher as well...
