Exciting New Culinary Concept

Destined to strengthen its position as a dining destination, a new culinary concept was born. This gastronomic notion is based on the premise of providing a dining experience that is authentic, fresh and wholesome. Curated by the newly-appointed Creative Consultant chef Athinagoras Kostakos and Chef a La Carte Komninos Mouflouzelis in collaboration with Blue Palace’s Executive Chef Alexandros Lefkaditis, what sets this new food project apart, is its ethos to spice up the known Greek classics and Mediterranean cuisine to give them a je ne sais quoi mouth-watering dining experience.
