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:
