Greek Restaurant Archontiko Now Open in McLean

Almost one year after it’s expected opening date, Archontiko just started serving up modern Greek dishes in McLean.

The restaurant opened about one week ago, an employee told Tysons Reporter.

Archontiko occupies the former spot of Evo Bistro, another Mediterranean restaurant, at 1313 Old Chain Bridge Road. The restaurant’s opening was delayed multiple times due to construction work and the inspections from Fairfax County.

Diners can find a crab burger, vegetarian entrees, pikilia (a plate of mixed appetizers) and sandwiches served over pita bread with lemon potatoes and salad on the lunch menu. Meanwhile, the dinner menu features seafood and lamb entrees, vegetarian entrees and salads — including Greek salad.

For dessert, there’s baklava, rice pudding with cinnamon, yogurt cake and more.

Executive Chef Markos Baladimas creates dishes inspired by traditional Greek cuisine, “which is combining the simplicity of the raw materials with the richness of their flavors,” according to the restaurant’s website.

The restaurant’s hours are 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sundays, the employee said.
