Thank Goodness for Milos

Between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, we were in Las Vegas for a few days of relaxation and catching meals at some of our favorite restaurants.

The beauty of Vegas is that so much of it changes over, there is almost always a completely new experience to be had. We stayed at The Venetian and on our third day, decided we should try Estiatorio Milos for lunch. I’ve linked to the menu, and it’s well worth your time to take a look.

Milos is located in the Restaurant Row that connects the Venetian to the Palazzo. The restaurant itself is gorgeous. Whether you’re there for lunch or dinner, the ambience is inviting. The place was packed, even for lunch, but it didn’t feel like the crowd was impacting service.

The menu is seafood heavy, with a focus on Greek and Mediterranean-style cuisine. I decided on the lunch prix fixe option, which I’ve found is a good way to try out a little bit of everything.

I started with the Greek Meze Plate, which included, Tzatziki, taramosalata and htipiti, grilled pita and raw vegetables.

It was perfect. Fresh, light, and delicious. The taramosalata is an unbelievably tasty fish roe-based dip made of salted and roe of fish (pictured to the top right of the photo above). The htipiti is a red pepper and feta tip (pictured in the center), and the tzatziki was at the top left. Each had the consistency of a mousse. Phenomenal.

For the main course, I had the Faroe Islands wild salmon, grilled, with Santorini piazza-style beans.

The salmon was a delight, and a lunch cut, so it was filling enough to keep moving through an afternoon of Vegas fun. I finished off the meal with Greek yogurt, which was again, a light compliment to an overall delicious meal. I forgot to get a picture, though.

It’s easy to sleep on Milos, considering all of the other amazing restaurants within proximity. However, if you’re looking for some great tastes, and don’t want to get weighted down by steaks, pastas, or other heavy entrees, consider a fresh and light side of Greek fare.

10/10. Can’t wait to get back.
