Kyma

We celebrated our anniversary at Kyma (pronounced Key-ma) on Piedmont Road. The service was excellent. Our waiter named Χρηστόφορος, which means the Bearer of Christ, was very knowledgeable but was hard to understand with his thick accent and also did not smell very good. The menu is mainly seafood with whole fish being one of the featured items. After Χρηστόφορος suggested a nice Greek wine Protopapas, we decided on a shrimp saganaki appetizer baked with ouzo, tomatoes, and crumbled feta cheese. The shrimp were perfectly cooked, great start to an even greater meal. Eric ordered the whole fish, Tsipoura, which was smaller than we thought but very tasty, no bones, topped with fennel. He also had a side of Greek fries which were little potato disks which were fried and delightful. Myra ordered the chef's special halibut with creamed leeks and a tomato puree - probably one of the best entrees ever created! We had a second glass of wine, Besbeas Estates Cabernet, a little fuller bodied wine but equally excellent. Dessert was a chocolate lava cake with cinnamon ice cream, chosen by Χρηστόφορος for our anniversary. Sounds like a much better Greek dining experience than Michael's. And no spinning rides afterwards. We'd definitely go back.

I'm so impressed with this review for a couple of reasons:
1.) your total recall of everything you consumed (did you take notes? have a secret taper recorder?)
2.) you know how to type Greek jibber jabber letters.
3.) you are a faithful "BB" a.k.a "BellyBlogger". (Although I am not surprised!)
Will remember this restaurant when jonesing for Greek food.

I am most impressed by your ability to spell his name phonetically. I am not sure I would be able to do that after two bottles of wine. Opa!

Joe & I ate there for our anniversary this week, too! Fabulous service, good wine, good food (Although I don't have near total recal like Myra) - all together an A. However, I will say that I liked Joe's steak better than whatever fish our waiter suggested for me. It was good, but not great. And another unfortunate thing: Joe found a big rock in his grape leaves...and the waiter said it happened all the time (!)
Love the blog, Michael! I will try to get a really big belly just so I can comment with authority on your restaurant pics.

This place is awesome. There may not be a better place to grow the belly!
