This past weekend we were transported to Greece as we dined at the new West Loop restaurant called Nisos Mediterranean. Located on Randolph, this spot is modern and trendy while the ambiance is intimate making it perfect for a date night or dinner with a small group. Every dish is an EXPERIENCE and we enjoyed every bit of the meal from the drinks to the food. The first thing we noticed walking in was the amazing interior design. The room was filled with neutral tones and up lighting to showcase authentic décor.
Service: The Nisos staff is incredibly attentive and knowledgeable of menu items. We took our waiters advice when it came to portion size suggestions. We were advised on favorite starter plates and sharable dishes amongst the table. Huge shoutout to the AMAZING Chef Avgeria!! Thanks for coming out to greet us and making our cheesecake come to life!
HH Dish Recommendations:
