Peter Conistis’ Ploos The Sydney Place for Real South Aegean Food

Chef and restaurateur Peter Conistis knows Greek food: his eateries – Cosmos, Eleni’s, and Alpha and Omega attest to that now he’s bringing Sydney, Australia an island touch of Greek food.

That’s at his new restaurant Ploos, featuring cuisine from the South Aegean, in the fashionable neighborhood on Sydney Harbor called The Rocks, a favorite of locals and tourists.

“I have so much passion and respect for regional Greek cuisine,” he told the site Broadsheet. “I’m not from Crete or Cyprus, but I want to showcase what the food is about, and let people know there’s more to Greek food than your classic slow-roasted lamb.”

The dishes on his menu feature ingredients and cooking techniques unique to Greece’s South Aegean and Mediterranean islands, and Cyprus.

“A lot of our dishes are inspired by both Crete and Cyprus at the same time,” he said. “The chargrilled octopus with carob glaze. The carob tree grows throughout Cyprus, and it gives this molasses, rich, nutty, sharp flavor to the octopus. It’s served on a bed of bottarga taramosalata, pickled cucumber, and fresh caper leaf shoots.” A Greek twist.
