It is Greek, it is gorgeous. It is fresh, imported Mediterranean seafood. It is upscale cuisine, it is pricey. It is located just a few blocks from where I live.

The original Estiatorio Milos by Costas Spilladis debuted in 1979; now there are branches in Montreal, New York, Athens, Las Vegas, London and South of Fifth Street in Miami Beach. It has been six years since Estiatorio Miami opened, and to celebrate there’s a special menu being offered throughout June and July: a three course dinner for $39 per person, with optional wine pairing at $30 per (the four-year anniversary menu was four courses for $44).

First course choices are all attractive, from a Whole Dorado Royale sashimi for two with Fresno chili and cilantro, to a terrifically tender grilled octopus piled over a puree of Santorini fava beans.

The Greek Meze plate is the prettiest you will likely ever see, a colorful array of hummus, a bright red pepper Feta dip (htipiti), and an exceptionally smooth and mild taramasalata -- and plenty of warm pita bread.

Main courses include Grilled Sword Fish topped with grilled vegetables, a petite Filet of Beef (6 oz.) with fries, and Bay of Fundy Lobster over linguine (for two).

“The Real Greek Yogurt” (thick as ice cream) with heavenly honey (also thick) and walnuts is, in my book, a perfect dessert.

Estiatorio Milos is always a sure bet for a great upscale Mediterranean dining experience. Throughout June and July, you can get a taste of honey at a sweet price.
