Costas Spiliadis, founder of estiatorio Milos, first arrived in New York in 1966 from his native Patras, a port city near the ancient Greek village of Olympia. In 1979, he opened the first location of estiatorio Milos in Montreal. Milos rapidly became one of the city’s most influential dining destinations, introducing new tastes and culinary experiences, and known for the quality and simplicity of ingredients and preparations. Following his great success in Montreal, Spiliadis opened a second location of estiatorio Milos in 1997 in New York City, working directly with a curated group of Greek fishermen on the island of Kythera to cast their lines into the Mediterranean every midnight to provide the freshest products for his guests. Spiliadis’ vision came full circle when, in 2004, estiatorio Milos opened in Athens, in accordance with the Winter Olympics in Greece, quickly expanding to Las Vegas in 2010, Miami in 2012, and London in 2015. estiatorio Milos will open a second New York location in March 2019 as part of the Hudson Yards development project on the west side of Manhattan.
