He said his background is rooted in family togetherness and a love for food and that he wanted to bring his Greek origins to his experiences growing up in the Hudson Valley as a Red Hook native.

He said that as a child he was drawn to the bustling energy of the kitchen, where his family would gather to prepare elaborate meals for special occasions and everyday dinners, learning the power of food to bring people together.

Those childhood memories play into what he’s trying to bring at Mazi, he said, by incorporating traditional Greek flavors and techniques into his cooking while also infusing his dishes with his own creative twists and tastes.
