ESTIATORIO MILOS Las Vegas

ESTIATORIO MILOS is beyond the best. I dined for the first time there yesterday and see what I have really been missing.

This elegant fish house has an open patio room and our party of 12 enjoyed the air and superb view. lv-shelley3

We did a media tasting, starting with Tselepos Amalia Brut rose NV for whole fish sashimi. The second course had a 2016 Gerovassiliou Viognier wine with a Greek salad. lv-shelleyAlmost everything is imported from Greece, and they only feature the very top in wine and food. Fish is flown in daily from Greece, Spain, and Portugal. lv-shelley1 The Milos special, with light fried zucchini, eggplant tzatziki, and cheese, along with grilled mushrooms, Holland peppers and octopus was the third course with a 2016 Venetsanos Mandilaria. The main course for the whole table was a huge salt encrusted Lavraki, our equivalent to a Mediterranean Sea Bass baked in a salt crust, served with steamed vegetables. lv-shelley2The waiter had us all watch the demonstration of removing the crust and fileting the large fish. Next out was Colorado Prime Lamb Chops with Greek fried potatoes and a 2013 Driopi Memea Reserve Agiorgitiko.

We finished with a huge selection of Greek desserts, including Baklava, Greek yogurt, and fruit.

lv-shelley5I cannot wait to go back. They have a luncheon that is 3 courses for the price of the current year, thus $20.19. The main dining room looks over the fish and vegetables in the fresh fish market. You simply pick a fish from the bed of ice, they weigh it and prepare it. Fish change daily. The chefs are in view of your dining. The first Milos opened in 1979 in Montreal. They have expanded across the U.S. including New York, Miami, Athens, and London.

Located on the 3rdfloor of the Cosmopolitan resort, 3708 S. Las Vegas Blvd. 702-698-7930 for lunch or dinner
