Atlantikos at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Serves Greek Fare in an Upscale Setting.
Reminiscent of the bright blue and white contrasting colors of Greece, Atlantikós exudes a truly authentic dining experience and is the latest culinary debut at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort. Chef Anastasios “Tasos” Chasekioglou offers a curated selection of traditional Greek dishes, tailored to Miami. Meant to be enjoyed as a shared experience, the Atlantikós menu takes guests on a journey of exceptional flavors from the Greek mainland to the islands.
The menu was created by chef Anastasios Tasos Chasekioglou, who as a boy spent all the time he could in the kitchen watching his mother put together dishes that have existed for thousands of years. At Atlantikos, he marries some local flavors with the ancient spirit of the recipes and techniques from the Greek islands he’s visited, but the menu is consistent with his devotion to his national cuisine.
“Simple, fresh ingredients,” he say of the olive oil, Vasilissa honey, feta cheese, olives, fava beans, caper leaves, and fish flown in every couple of days straight from his homeland. “That’s the heart and soul of Greek fare.”
The “To Share or Not to Share” section of the menu is a great way to start your culinary odyssey. Choose from the assortment of Greek spreads , branzino tartare , beef and lamb meatballs , or grilled octopus with fava split pea pureé from Santorini .
