Kifissia welcomed a new addition in May 2016. Zambri is an all-day cafe- restaurant with... colonial character (in Maori it means colony) in the mansion, which once housed the legendary Beau Brummel and later Chateau.
Zambri is not the regular haunt you may be used to. It has a unique personality, which is omnipresent, placing a strong emphasis on high end services. Passing through the wooden entrance, you get the feeling you walk into a colonial country house –Giorgos Panteloukas and his company, GJP Design & Construction, took care of the design– and you are automatically transferred somewhere highly exotic. Stone, wood and a number of plants (impressive cacti, towering palm trees, etc.), vintage tiles, impressive lighting star in the space, which has the largest courtyard in Kifissia and is admittedly one of the most impressive places you’ll find.
You will also be impressed by its high end services, which are characterized by a value for money philosophy. In the morning, Zambri is filled with the aroma of single-variety Alto Palomar Peruvian coffee (one of most expensive) and the taste of the proposals of its delicious brunch, which is served daily and is inspired by the Greek gastronomy (kagiana eggs, apaki etc.).
In the evening, the scenery changes. Here, the protagonist is none other than the modern Greek and Mediterranean cuisine with inspired proposals by the chef Giorgos Kaperdas. BBQ salmon with tabasco sauce, Tomahawk Steak for two people (served in a special dish), and chicken kavourmas are some of the dishes that blow people away, with Zambri Tower, a dessert- real tower of cream puffs, toffee ice cream and a special cream writing the most delicious epilogue.
The bar couldn’t but follow the same concept, with Angelos Triantafyllou having created an interesting cocktail list with house proposals of which the Sao Paolo cocktail (cachaca, passion fruit, lime, agave, dried strawberry) being one of the most popular cocktails. This does not mean you cannot enjoy also your favourite classic recipe.
