Meraki Greek Bistro
Why wait for your summertime travels to Europe for the ultimate Greecian dining experience? Tucked away in heart of Downtown Miami (142 SE 1st Avenue, Miami, FL, 33131), the newly opened Meraki Greek Bistro transports you to Greece with their “taverna style” outdoor patio of Greek Island inspired white washed walls, blue and white pillows, large rustic tables, as well as throughout their interiors that includes an array of Hellenic artwork and cleverly crafted hanging basket lights.
A term that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, and love. Whatever it may be, it encompasses putting ‘something of yourself’ into what you’re doing – which is exactly what CO-owners Alex Karavias andexecutive chef Giannis Kotsos (who previously owned and operated restaurants in Greece for over 20 years) did when conceptualizing the designs, recipes and overall experience.
Take the culinary Mediterranean journey with their authentic and traditional appetizers, souvlaki, lamb chops, charred octopus, hand-crafted gyros and homemade desserts. Feeling a little adventurous? Meraki Greek Bistro exclusively offers “Greek Nachos” — a Greek-twist made with crispy pitas an a SECRET SAUCE, topped off with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, olives, feta, and olive oil. Rounding out your ultimate Hellenic tasting experience, the restaurant proudly offers a wide selection of Greek rich wines and beers from the award-winning Nico Lazaridi King of Hearts and the centuries old Santorini by Boutari.
Did I mention they offer customers 3 hours of parking for $1 in the Miami Tower?
