“The restaurant is a project of the love and passion from my Hellenic roots. It is a project that I can claim proudly to be 100% Greek idea, design, decoration and materials. With this in mind I have created a space made in Greece. Welcome to 1821.” — Jim Kospetas, Owner
1821 is a restaurant located in the heart of Sydney CBD. The restaurant pays homage to the 1821 Greek revolution against the Ottomans. The restaurant was designed by Athens-based designed Dimitris Economou and the three-level fit out was built in Greece then shipped to Sydney.
February 2019 marks a new era for 1821 as it welcomes an international collaboration with BlueFish Restaurants in Greece, taking a new culinary direction under Executive Chef George Economidis.
“I have visited Greece extensively in the last year and I have been amazed at the emerging trends and the rising stars in the Greek dining scene. I am very excited about collaborating with George and BlueFish. This collaboration completes my vision for 1821, which is “Made in Greece””.
