Greek Restaurant Estiatorio Milos to Make a Huge Move to the Venetian

The restaurant is using an estimated $10 million budget to build the new space

Working over the summer under the cover name of Project Blue, 10-year Strip veteran Estiatorio Milos at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is taking its Mediterranean-inspired seafood menu to the Venetian’s restaurant row.

Yet to be confirmed or announced by either venue, new paperwork reveals construction work has been ongoing since August, bolstered by a $10 million budget in estimated construction costs alone.

Filling 13,624 square feet on the site of shuttered seafood restaurant Aquaknox, the footprint is roomy enough for a maximum occupancy of 434 inside.

Launched in Las Vegas on December 15, 2010, the opening day of the Cosmopolitan resort, the airy, light-toned tribute to globally sourced seafood continues to feature a main dining space, private wine and luxury rooms, plus the bonus of an enviable, 75-seat Garden Terrace overlooking the Strip. Imagined to appeal to a equally well-heeled clientele, the Venetian space offers no outdoor views.

Contractors Team Construction are attached to the new project, a Strip fixture for high-profile venues, including The Mayfair Supper Club at the Bellagio, the recently remodeled Venetian pool deck, and Mott 32 at the Palazzo.

Expected to become a neighbor to a future restaurant from John Kunkel’s 50 Eggs, a possible debut date in 2021 has not been revealed.

Created by chef and restaurateur Costas Spiliadis in 1997, the international Milos empire also operates in Montreal, Athens, Miami, London, and a polarizing expansion to New York’s Hudson Yards back in March 2019.
