At the back of Thessaloniki’s Courthouse, just a few meters from the intersection of Fragon with S. Brantouna street, you will notice a modern meze tavern that very quickly became one of the most famous eating spots in the city.
Sempriko, which means cooperative, started operating in 2012 under a group of young people. During the day, you will notice that it’s full of people in suits, mostly lawyers and that’s because of its close proximity to the Courthouse. But besides them, in Sempriko you will spot all kinds of people.
The food is totally amazing, the spalobrizola (rib steak) is the highlight of Sempriko and surely one of the best I have ever tasted! Also try the chilopites with kavourma (a type of pasta accompanied with greek pork confit), the risotto with wild mushrooms and truffle (yummy!) and ladotyri from Mytilene or any other of the many types of cheese.
Uh, I forgot to mention that Sempriko also has a grocery store where you can buy many delicious products from small producers around the country! The grocery store combined with the unique decoration and the grandiose surrounding area (Byzantine Walls) create a fascinating and relaxing atmosphere!
Despite the fact that last year Sempriko was bought by a new owner (April, 2016) and therefore has a new chef, the quality of the food remains exceptional.
