Eat, drink and be merry in Athens
In Greece, one of the good things to come out of the recent financial crisis is a renewed appreciation for traditional recipes.

No matter what language you speak or where you come from, sharing a meal with friends is the best way to spend an evening.

The series RSVP Abroad drops our host in a foreign city with nothing (and no one) to help her complete her challenge: Throw an authentic, intimate dinner party that even the fussiest of locals will deem cool. Through a combination of social media suggestions and local tips from, well, anyone that will help her, our host must source authentic dishes, drinks, music, decor, a dinner table - and, of course, new friends to fill it.
