The 10-year Strip veteran departed the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas last year to move its Mediterranean-inspired seafood menu to the Venetian’s restaurant row.
Work started on the new space in August, bolstered by a $10 million budget in estimated construction costs alone. Milos takes over the 13,624 square feet of shuttered seafood restaurant Aquaknox, with a maximum occupancy of 434 inside.
Milos flies its seafood in daily from the Mediterranean then displays it in the restaurant’s fish market, where customers can pick their dinners. Whole fish in sea salt, tuna, lobster, salmon, and octopus make the menu, along with the Milos Special, a tower of fried paper-thin zucchini and eggplant with tzatziki at the base and within.
Alain Carle Architecte created the look of the restaurant. Already, Milos has eight locations worldwide. It originally launched in Las Vegas on December 15, 2010, the opening day of the Cosmopolitan resort, with an airy, light-toned tribute to globally sourced seafood.
