Tucked away in Downtown Miami is the newly opened Meraki Greek Bistro, which quietly opened late last month and boasts an authentic Greek cuisine created by executive chef Ioannis Kotsos, who prior to Meraki owned and operated restaurants in Greece.
On the menu expect plenty of traditional, house-made items like pork gyros, lamb chops, charred octopus, “souvlakia aka skewers made with items like shrimp, pork, bacon-wrapped chicken and veggies, along with a Greek-twist on nachos made with pita chips topped with tomatoes, cucumber, olives, feta, yogurt sauce and olive oil.
The space keeps with the Greek theme featuring white washed walls, blue and white pillows, large rustic tables and hanging lighting of different heights.
