Sea urchin (uni) in Athens
We are going to be in Athens in September and having a difficult time looking for genuinely good places to eat (based on guidebook/travel site recs). Although I will keep looking for Chowhound posts, I wanted to know if anyone knows the spot that Anthony Bourdain ate at when he was in Athens that served freshly-caught sea urchin? I have been unsuccessful in finding the name and would really like to try that place (or something similar).
I don't know where he ate it, but I would think you could find super-fresh sea urchin in Piraeus, the port of Athens. There are quite a few good tavernas/seafood restaurants there.
Not sure which places are the best lately, since I haven't been in 5 years, but that's where I would go for seafood in the Athens area.
Here is a link to a thread on Bourdain in Greece:
The place Bourdain went to is not near Athens. One particular seafood place in Piraeus that is supposed to be really good (with urchin too) is KOLLIAS. I'm looking forward to going there in December. If you google them, you'll find their website in Greek. Too bad I can't read it.
