Interesting vegetarian restaurants in Athens?

Was wondering whether anyone has good vegetarian (lacto-ovo) restaurant recommendations? Doesn't have to be strictly vegetarian - just enough choices, unique cooking styles, and maybe some interesting twists to classic meat dishes made vegetarian style...

The Greek cuisine is widely based on fresh vegetables, and you will find many options in almost every taverna.

Here is some information of the Greek cuisine:

You would be hard pressed - except for the souvlaki joints and the tourist traps, to find a restaurant that does not have a descent selection from which to choose.

In the 60s and 70s, eating meat was reserved mostly for weekends and special celebrations, as the country was poor and meat was expensive. As such, and with the style now returning to a modern twist to old favourites, I think you will be well suited to choose most restaurants especially given the fact that you can have dairy and eggs.
