For months I was looking forward to a Greek restaurant finally opening inside the Hellenic Club in Woden. My email subscription to the club was a constant weekly reminder for me to go to Orexi, the highly anticipated new Greek eatery bringing with it a promise of upmarket food by an international Greek chef- Yiannis Baxevanis.
To my surprise, during my weekly brief scroll down the club’s email, something caught my eye which made me scroll back up and re-read the text. Something was different and it took me a brief moment to realise that Orexi’s banner was replaced with Fillo’s Taverna and bar, which started trading last night.
I started typing in Orexi’s website, the page could not be found. I searched the club’s site; no trace of Orexi. It would almost be like they never existed, except for the mixed reviews online as recent as last week.
I wonder what happened?
Looking at Fillo’s menu, there are plenty of things I want to try as it has a lot more range than when they were at The Hamlet. I might have to try it sooner rather than later, just in case they get replaced.
