Renowned Chef Spiliadis Teaches Las Vegas Greek Food’s Allure

When you think of Greek restaurants places like New York, Boston, and Chicago come to mind, not Las Vegas, but chef Costas Spiliadis's Estiatorio Milos changed that and now has moved from its home at The Cosmopolitan to The Venetian.

He told Las Vegas magazine that, “we came to Las Vegas fully understanding that Greek cuisine and food was either unknown or completely misunderstood. We also came with the strong conviction that people would appreciate and love our food as soon as they discover the virtues of true Greek cuisine: simplicity, extraordinary and fresh ingredients, honest, straightforward, and healthy food.”

Some 42 years after opening his first spot in Montreal he said that the concept of Milos is “constantly evolving. Our cuisine is not based on recipes but on ingredients that the land and sea can provide us with.”

It's an approach that keeps earning rave reviews, and even gamblers and people hustling through Las Vegas have learned to stop and enjoy and smell the Greek food.

“Drawing from ancient Greece and Rome, we will present certain small dishes, mezze, of cured and marinated fish,” he said.
