Executive chef Tony Gardizi harnesses his extensive upscale-restaurant experience and passion for seasonal ingredients to forge fresh and distinctive dishes within a stylishly designed dining room at Studio Mykonos. With today’s deal, diners will sidle up to candlelit tables or ensconce themselves behind sheer curtains in cozy leather booths before a server solicits personal preferences to guide the chef’s choice of menu items. Like the angle of the Earth’s orbit around the moon, selections will vary from night to night, but the restaurant’s regular menu ranges from the buttery richness of the chef’s seafood dishes, such as pan-seared scallops or cumin-dusted ahi tuna, to protein-packed presentations of dry-rubbed rib eye or marinated lamb chops. The tailor-made tasting journey culminates with an ambrosial dessert dish, giving taste buds the sugary caress they need for a good night’s sleep.
Sultry jazz tones emanate from a group of live musicians every night, complementing a modish décor that features glowing paper lanterns and floral bouquets. A dance floor beckons diners and sure-footed salad forks to strut their stuff, and an open-air patio allows eaters to revel in fresh evening breezes.
