Greek Chef Barbarigou Tests Washington Market

February 17, 2019

Renowned in Greece, chef Argiro Barbarigou is going to open a 5,000-square foot version of her popular Athens restaurant Papadakis in Washington, D.C.’s West End later this year, along with an in-house bakery bringing classic Greek desserts for diners.

A large exposed oven – an iconic feature of Grecian homes and kitchens – will have a starring role in the establishment, which will also feature a pick-up counter.

“I want D.C. to taste the same thing we taste – the food of my home,” Barbarigou said, Eater Washington reported.

She’s known as the “First Lady of Greek Cuisine” and began with a restaurant on her home island of Paros before opening another on Mt. Lycabettus in Athens.

Most of Washington’s version will be devoted to the fine-dining restaurant, which will fit 100 to 120 people inside and up to 80 outside.
