Estiatorio Milos restaurateur, Costas Spiliadis, is known for excellence in Greek dining, serving the freshest Mediterranean seafood found throughout the world. Today he has taken it up a notch by providing boutique wines from all around this ancient land.
At The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on the world-famous Strip, guests now can enjoy the Winemaker’s Table Dinner held the first Thursday of every month at Estiatorio Milos.
These dinners provide an outstanding, rare opportunity to experience world-class organic wines produced from indigenous varieties by award-winning winemakers. They are accented by a specially designed tasting menu featuring Milos’ signature dishes.
Recently, the Peloponnese region was featured with excellence on the plate and in the glass. Chef’s selection of oysters served with dill cucumber mignonette and a crisp 2016 Rhous Estate white wine was a splendid beginning to the six-course tasting menu.
Pan-seared bay scallops with olive oil and sea salt were the next offering, and were paired beautifully with a 2016 Tselepos Canava Assyrtiko wine.
A meal would not be complete without a tasty fish selection from this renowned venue, and Milos has an elaborate display of fish and produce that is featured prominently for guests to look at as they make their menu decisions.
On this occasion, perfectly prepared grilled grouper served with Mediterranean couscous and a 2015 Venetsanos Nykteri wine certainly delighted all that attended.
The wine pairings were spot on as the 2016 Venetsanos Mandilara married wonderfully with a colorful dish of red, yellow and orange Holland peppers with extra-virgin olive oil, roasted garlic, aged balsamic and grilled mushrooms.
Colorado grilled prime lamb chops with steamed broccoli and cauliflower arrived tableside, providing guests with an exceptional cut of lamb paired with 2014 Rhous Kotsifali Mandilara “skipper red” wine.
The big finis was just that; a fabulous dining experience coming to an end with a sweet, tart kardopita served with kaimaki ice cream and fresh fruit paired with 2014 RhousVidiano/Plyto “skipper white” wine.
The Milos Winemaker’s Table Dinners provide novices and experienced oenophiles an opportunity to learn about small-production Greek wines and some of the most authentic Greek dishes that can be found outside of the Mediterranean itself.
