"Filoi" was born out of its owner's deep love for Greece. It's a casual restaurant where you can enjoy Greek home cooking and select wines from various regions of Greece.
Using abundant olive oil, Greek cooking is at the heart of the healthy and pleasing to all senses, colorful Mediterranean diet. Join us and try our menu choices created under the supervision of Greek culinary researcher, Stelios Perzerakos, in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
The word "filoi" comes from the Greek language and means "friends". My dream for "Filoi" was a cozy place where everyone would feel at home.
When I was living in Greece, our landlady, Ms Niki would always teach me some new Greek dish. "I'm making gemista (stuffed vegetables) today; come and watch" she would say and even though she didn't follow written recipes, she was kind enough to share with me the ways she used the ingredients and their results, always delicious! What I want to share with the world is this kind of taste that only Greek moms know.
This introduction to Greece's home cooking is my way to repay my Greek friends for their warm acceptance.

About our dishes
Our dishes have been created under the supervision of Greek culinary researcher Stelios Perzerakos who is currently residing in Japan.
Born in Athens, Greece, Stelios Perzerakos moved to Japan in 2013. His broad repertoire ranges from traditional recipes taught to him by his great-grandmother to modern Mediterranean fusion cuisine and the big kitchen at his home is always filled with Greek and Japanese friends, who come to taste his creations. Recently, with the Greek yogurt boom in Japan and him being one of the few experts in Greek cuisine in the country, he has been featured in TV programs and websites introducing ways to use Greek yogurt in cooking.
Being a Mediterranean country, Greece is blessed with abundant sunlight and enough rain to make its soil fertile and produce plenty of brightly colored vegetables. The healthy cooking of these ingredients with olive oil, famous for its antioxidant properties, is called "Mediterranean Diet" and has been included in UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list.
