Kokkari Estiatorio, a popular Greek restaurant in San Francisco that has received Michelin recognition, is ranked No. 14 in the Fine Dining category, behind other highly regarded American eateries like Hawaii's Lahaina Grill, which won the top spot.
The chief chef at Kokkari, Erik Cosselmon, stated on the restaurant's website, "The goal at Kokkari and Evvia is to deliver as near to an authentic Greek restaurant experience as possible. It's not just about the cuisine; it's also about the people, the festive mood, and the hospitality of the Greeks.
