Great food/folk music/dancing

We'd love to spend a great evening eating wonderful Greek food and enjoying folk music and dance. There are lists of places offering folk music, but I'd like to find one that has great food as well. I don't know how to start narrowing the search....we will be in Athens on July 2, 3, and 4 probably staying in the Plaka or Monostariki area but we would take a taxi to anywhere suggested. Thanks for any help you can provide! I hope I'm not asking something that has already been answered but it appears a lot of the nightlife questions are about clubs....thank you in advance for your advice/assistance!

I too am interested in what Sunny has asked about.

Can you offer up any suggestions in the Psiri neighborhood. Thanks for any help you may be able to provide!

Although I won't personally experience this until my visit in late May, the following places look good that have rebetiko and other music and dancing, and some have food:

1. Stoa Athanaton - Central Market area, but limited hours and months

2. Stamatopoulos Tavern - Omonia, bouzouki

3. Rebetiki Istoria - Exarchia

They open late. You can see some previews on YouTube. There are other places if you google rebitiko/rembitiko/rebetiki/rembetika, which is just one of the forms of Greek music.

too bad that all these will be closed in July.
