After more than a year of planning, construction, and preparation, a new Greek restaurant in New York City is opening this week in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Medusa Greek Taverna, located on Fifth Avenue about seven blocks from the Barclays Center, hosted a private food and wine tasting event for friends and family Saturday night before it welcomes its enthusiastic first customers this week.
Medusa Taverna takes traditional Greek food and elevates it with locally sourced and sustainable ingredients in both its food and drinks. Medusa aims to be Brooklyn’s hottest destination for fine Greek cuisine. It will offer a fresh and tasty array of Greek salad options, specially prepared meat and fish entres, scrumptious Mediterranean themed deserts, a unique assortment of European wines, and remarkable blends of non-alcoholic mocktails.
Once you enter the sleek and stylish establishment you are greeted by a florescent neon light fixture, on a pristine brick wall, of the renown Medusa from Greek mythology. She is also seen throughout the elegant restaurant, from the white marble top bar to the amazingly designed bathrooms.
Medusa is sure to be a hit with diners near and far since it is brought to you by the Mil Gustos Hospitality Group, which owns and operates Bogota Latin Bistro and Miti Miti Modern Mexican in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and Miti Miti Latin Street Food in South Orange, New Jersey.
If you are looking for a new and exciting Greek dining experience, venture out to Medusa Greek Taverna and share your thoughts on social media. Since the eatery is just getting started, the management would appreciate your feedback. See you at Medusa!
