LAS VEGAS, NV – The well-known Estiatorio Milos at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas closed its doors on October 25, but a new Milos is scheduled to open in late February or early March of 2021, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

Greek chef and owner Costas Spiliadis told the Review-Journal via email that “I am thrilled that a new era for Milos in Las Vegas begins at The Venetian, where we are building a most beautiful restaurant, aiming at opening late February or (the) beginning of March.”

Spiliadis is currently in Montreal, “where he has been riding out the COVID-19 situation for the past seven months,” the Review-Journal reported, adding that “the chef, who says he's `going crazy' during his confinement in Canada, promises a return to Las Vegas `as soon as traveling to the USA is permitted.'”

Canada and the U.S. “agreed in March to restrictions on nonessential travel to slow the spread of the coronavirus,” the Review-Journal reported, noting that “Estiatorio Milos, which also has locations in Montreal, New York, London, and Miami, has been a staple of The Cosmopolitan's restaurant collection since the resort opened.”

The new Milos, “designed by Alain Carle Architecte, will be on the `restaurant row' that connects The Venetian and Palazzo,” the Review-Journal reported, adding that “the good news for the staff is that they will be moving to the new space.”

When asked how many members of the Milos team would be moving from The Cosmopolitan to The Venetian, Spiliadis told the Review-Journal, `All of them!'”
