New Greek restaurant to open in Dubai this year

If you love Greek food you're in luck, as a brand-new Mediterranean seafood concept, Estiatorio Milos, is coming to dubai

The Mediterranean and Greek fusion restaurant is due to open in late 2019, along with Atlantis The Palm’s sister hotel, The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences.

Headed by chef Costas Spiliadis, the restaurant will have three private dining rooms, and rooftop and terrace, along with room for 220 indoor seats.

The interiors will also feature a structure which “appears to ‘float’, and is "fully transparent”. It will have six-metre high ceilings and Greek marble floors, as well as sliding floor-to-ceiling glass doors that will present views of The Royal Atlantis’ water fountains as well as the Dubai skyline.

The restaurant is already popular in the US. Spiliadis opened the first Estiatorio Milos in Montreal in 1979, and has since opened others in New York, Athens, Las Vegas, Miami and London.

Dubai diners can expect a family-style idea, with dishes including fresh catch of the day, grilled or baked in sea salt to concentrate the natural flavors – a Milos signature.

There will also be a raw bar featuring Greek wild oysters, sashimi and tartares. Other signature dishes include paper-thin, crispy fried courgette and aubergine slices over tzatziki and kefalograviera cheese.

The restaurant will offer a selection of mostly Greek and Mediterranean grape, with over 300 varieties available.

“Dubai has become a premier culinary and hospitality destination; with the world’s most talented chefs and well-regarded brands represented”, said chef Spiliadis.

“The Royal Atlantis is an ideal partner in our efforts to expose the world to Greek cuisine, highlighting the most exquisite ingredients and classic preparations.”

When it opens later this year The Royal Atlantis will also be home to Dinner from Heston Blumenthal. The British chef behind The Fat Duck will be bringing his creative spark and innovative gastronomy dishes to Dubai in what will be his first restaurant in the city. There will also be a tapas restaurant, Jaleo, from chef José Andrés and a Persian restaurant, Ariana's Persian Kitchen.

The property's neighbour, Atlantis The Palm, already has restaurants from famous names including Nobu, Bread Street Kitchen from Gordon Ramsay and Ronda Locatelli by Giorgio Locatelli.
