Mosaic's ceiling looks like a sculpture from Poseidon's undersea art gallery. Hand-blown blue glass and a droplet-shaped light fixture make it resemble the ocean. Waterfalls plummet to granite floors, binding the earth and heavens with more grace and ferocity than a saber-toothed ballerina. This dramatic scene is a fitting prelude to the restaurant's menu, which spans several oceans to incorporate fare from Greece, France, and Japan. Japanese ingredients pepper several seafood dishes, which range from tuna tataki sushi to chilean sea bass steeped in a sake lee marinade. The Greek influences stem from owners Athina, Maria, and Stella Papas, who cut their teeth at Pegasus, their father's iconic Greektown restaurant, and the French element emanates from Executive Chef Mark Kelly, who studied Gallic cuisine in culinary school. Together, these inspirations flavor fruit-studded goat-cheese salads and lamb chops brushed with olive oil and lemon juice. A sprawling list of wines and martinis pairs nicely with fare from all three countries and encourages patrons to mingle in the lounge area where DJs perform each weekend.
