5-Course Contemporary Greek Tasting Event
In 2015, Thomas and Rebecca Soukakos opened this inviting taverna on Capitol Hill that features traditional Greek recipes from earth and sea, with an emphasis on mezze, the small plates that can be shared by the table. Chef Soukakos, who has created other popular restaurants, like El Greco, Vios Café & Marketplace, also on Capitol Hill, and Vios at Third Place in Ravenna, is turning out exceptional dishes like mashari kokkinisto, which are beef short ribs served with herbed orzo and mizithra cheese, and kotopoulo, a pan-seared chicken with green olive tapenade and lemon risotto. And have we mentioned the free-flowing ouzo? It’s all served up in a modern, minimalist dining room decorated with splashes of Greece’s iconic blue. The Lonely Planet praises the food for being “thoughtfully and beautifully” prepared, while SeattleMet says, “Thank the Greek gods for Thomas Soukakos.” We'll be taking over the entire restaurant for this event, and Chef Soukakos will be on hand to field your questions and preach the Greek cuisine gospel.
About the Host:
Executive Chef & Owner
Born in Greece, Chef Soukakos founded his restaurant empire in 1994 with Broadway's El Greco (now sadly closed). A quarter-century later, restaurants like El Greco, the celebrated Vios Cafés, and most recently Omega Ouzeri (opened in 2015) have cemented Soukakos' reputation as Seattle's godfather of Greek cuisine.
Each course will be served family-style with either 2 or 3 portions/plate depending on the number of guests you are bringing to the event (i.e. if you are attending with one guest, you will be served two portions/plate). Solo attendees will receive individually-plated courses.
