Menu design & illustration
Kira Leni is a Greek restaurant that serves seasonal traditional dishes. The name comes from Leni (Helen), the person who started this business almost 40 years ago, while the whole place was working as a caffe and grocery. After a few years, when her children grew up, they undertook the business and changed it into a restaurant.
In the cover it's Kira Leni (Mrs Helen) herself. She was the person who started all this business and so we desited to pay tribute to her by putting her as an illustration in the cover of this menu.
Inlaid illustrations are local products which are used as seasonal ingredients for the restaurant's dishes.
