Giorgos Bakatsias Wants You to Get Past Moussaka, Think Seafood

September 24, 2022

Fans of Greek food in the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina have been able to count on restaurants owned by Giorgios Nicholas Bakatsias and now those in Wilmington will be getting their own – Kipos Hellenic Cuisine.

Part of his Giorgos Hospitality Group, the new restaurant will focus on seafood despite having a name that means garden and he said he wanted to take customers into more upscale Greek dining and not just traditional favorites.

“I wanted to bring something to the community that adds value. Many people in Wilmington have traveled widely and will appreciate elevated Greek cuisine. People who haven’t traveled still want the highest quality of fish,” he told the site WilmingtonBiz about the idea.

His chef, George Delidimos, said moussaka is indeed on the menu and made from scratch but that he wants people to have new Greek tastes in ‘simple’ food although he was trained at the Swiss Culinary Institute in Athens.

His real inspiration, he said, was his grandmother, who gave him a love of cooking, and he’s using some of her old Greek recipes and techniques, especially braising meat and fish.
