About Kellari Taverna

Kellari Taverna strives to shorten the time and distance any ingredient spends from the soil, or the water, or the air, to the plate. Ingredients are purchased directly from Greek and Mediterranean importers fish, oil, cheese, balsamic vinegar, sea salt and beans because they are so distinct and virtually indispensable to the creation of a great Greek meal.

The venue is wheelchair accessible.
