Brought up in the family restaurant business, with establishments in Coral Gables and Mykonos, co-owners, Costa Grillas and Niko Theodorou, have created a white hued urban environment in which to showcase their rustic Greek cuisine. The essence of which is simply prepared and perfectly fresh ingredients. Always on the menu, the grilled fish of the day incorporates nothing more than a drizzle of olive oil, lemon and oregano. The marinated, grilled octopus, served on a bed of tomatoes, and a half chicken, roasted with lemon and herbs are signature dishes. Classic dishes that delight, include Spanakopita, homemade spinach pie, and Papoutsaki, baked eggplant, and ground beef topped with a creamy béchamel and sweet tomato sauce.
Mezze, or small plates provide a quick luncheon bite or a sampling to be shared with friends before the main course. We bestow our stamp of approval on the pikilia, a plate of tzatziki, hummus, and taramosalata, a Greek-style caviar spread made from delicate codfish roe.
An array of sweets to round out the meal should include creamy Greek yogurt with honey, or the crowd pleasing, puffed pastry drizzled with honey and sprinkled with walnuts and cinnamon.
