In addition to overall excellence, Cosmo’s Mediterranean jewel Estiatorio Milos has been celebrated for its three-course, $29 lunch, one of the best dining deals on the Strip. Now it has added another must-eat attraction in the Winemaker’s Table menu ($79), available at dinner on the first Thursday of each month.
Six courses are paired with rare Greek varietals wines, upping the ante with a tasting dinner as fascinating as it is delicious. This month’s program launch featured Ktima Gerovassiliou, a cultivator of well- and lesser-known wines from the historic town of Epanomi. Matched with Milos’ legendary octopus, a 2016 Viognier sang lush, soft, almost peachy notes. The beloved lavraki from the lunch menu found a dancing partner in an aromatic Malagousia, a white grape rescued from likely extinction in the 1970s. It wasn’t all whites with delicate fish dishes; a Syrah/Limnio/Merlot blend was served alongside irresistible lobster pasta, and just when we thought we couldn’t find room for another bite, luscious grilled lamb chops arrived with the dark, ripe “Avaton,” a blend of three indigenous Greek grapes.
Milos has always been a rare dining experience in Las Vegas, but this monthly offering elevates its singular charm. Reserve immediately.
