Dio Deka

Hellenic cuisine is the hallmark of Dio Deka in the Hotel Los Gatos, where the restaurant's seven partners take pride in promoting the bounty of Greece and the Mediterranean. Chef/partner Salvatore Calisi sources seasonal ingredients alongside prime Greek products, such as fish, cheeses, olive oil and oregano. One of Calisi's great joys is to create Greek-inspired dishes that highlight the plethora of fine Greek wines. Wine director Vagelis Papazisis pairs the chef's signature dish Paithakia—mesquite-grilled, grass-fed lamb chops—with Château Semeli's 1998 Kokotos Cabernet-Merlot blend from Attica. After dinner, don't miss a cup of Greek coffee, heated in a copper pot over a bed of hot sand. It's all part of what the Greeks call filoxenia, the country's term for hospitality. One meal and a guest goes from stranger to friend.
