Estiatorio Milos is an interesting marriage of a Greek fish market and an upscale white tablecloth restaurant; bright, airy, and with touches of white in swathes of curtains, this place brings to mind sailboats on the azure waters of the Aegean Sea. As you walk into the restaurant, you pass by the display of fish, most of which you have never heard of, that have been flown straight from Mediterranean fishing boats.
To preserve the exquisite flavor of most of the fish, their preparation is very simple, mostly grilled or broiled and served with steamed or fresh vegetables. The best value is provided by the chef’s tasting menu, which comes with a wine pairing. Of the roughly 200 labels, about 90 percent of the wines are from the Greek islands and complement fish wonderfully. The whole experience is exquisite; even in a city so full of fresh fish, it is nice to taste something different.
