" - Elisa Ludwig, Philadelphia City Paper "....all food lovers should rejoice that Pitsillides came back with a restaurant all his own." - Joy Manning, Philadelphia Magazine "We have precious few chefs so devoted to celebrating rustic ethnic cooking with the blend of passion, attention to detail, and culinary skill that Pitsillides has.
