Nice N Easy Organic Bistro in Mykonos

I FINALLY made it to Nice n Easy Organic Bistro! I have been looking forward to it since the time I met the Co-owners Dimitris Christoforidis & Executive Chef Christos Athanasiadis. I had the pleasure of having Chef Christos come into my kitchen and cook for me! See that episode here…. https://youtu.be/aP7a5xMFeio

There are 3 locations in Greece! I was at the Mykonos location aka Little Venice. Nice n Easy is know for its locally grown produce combined with a Hollywood Influence. They serve Farm-To-Table Cuisine with an Organically Grown Cycladic Flare. And as bonus you get beautiful sunsets free of charge!

We enjoyed the following delish dishes with our sunset….

Tzatziki spread form Myconian strained sheep yoghurt

Vine leaves dolma stuffed with herb rice and Greek yogurt sauce on a bed of black eyed peas. (gluten free ingredients)

Charcoal roasted fresh sun dried Cycladic Octopus. (gluten free ingredients)

I had been to STK Los Angeles and STK New York awhile back and remember it being really good. STK Las Vegas reminded me how good!!! Looks like I will be going back a lot more often.

It was great to meet the man behind it all.  The ONE Group Executive Chef, Stephen Hopcraft at STK Las Vegas. He is also recognizable from Bravo TV’s “Top Chef” contestant and Food Network’s “Chefs vs. City”.

THANK YOU!!!

There’s also another Red O location in Newport Beach (that’s my next stop). I’ve heard it’s worth the trip! (hint, hint)
