Petros Benekos hired the executive chef from the Athens Olympic Village to cook at his Manhattan Beach showplace, and his mother flies in from Epirus once in a while to make sure he's cooking the family recipes the way she would. This is Greek cuisine treated with the seriousness of fine French cooking; it's expensive, sure, but worth it.
