Estiatorio Milos, the Greek restaurant at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas with a killer lunch deal, officially plans to depart the resort. Construction on a new location on the Venetian’s restaurant row already started, with the eatery taking over 13,624 square feet on the site of shuttered seafood restaurant Aquaknox. Under the code name Project Blue, Milos started construction in August, filing paperwork for a $10 million budget in estimated construction costs alone.
“We can confirm the upcoming departure of Estiatorio Milos from the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas,” a spokesperson for the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas tells Eater Vegas. “The unique Greek restaurant has been a part of our world-renowned restaurant collection since the property’s opening in December 2010. We express our sincere gratitude to the Estiatorio Milos team for their hard work and commitment over the past 10 years. We look forward to announcing an exciting new venture in the near future, continuing the resort’s ongoing approach of dynamic, first-to-market restaurant concepts.”
When Milos closes at the Cosmopolitan and opens at the Venetian remain the questions without answers. The current version at the Cosmopolitan features globally sourced seafood with a main dining space, private wine and luxury rooms, plus the bonus of a 75-seat Garden Terrace overlooking the Strip.
Restaurateur Costas Spiliadis originally opened Milos in 1997 and now operates in Montreal, Athens, Miami, London, and, most recently, debuted a polarizing expansion to New York’s Hudson Yards back in March 2019.
