ESTIATORIO KEIA TO OPEN IN H QUEEN’S
New restaurant celebrates Greek cuisine and Mediterranean flavours
Following the successful launch of ICHU Peru in H Queen’s, Dubai-based hospitality company Bulldozer Group will debut its latest venture, Estiatorio KEIA, at the end of December. Showcasing Greek cuisine, impeccably fresh seafood and Mediterranean flavours, the focus is on shared dishes, seasonal menus and modern cooking techniques.
The ingredients-driven menu was developed by Executive Chef Drew Andrade, in consultation with Alexis Zopas, a Mykonos-based chef from the ultra-hip Scorpios restaurant who has earned respect for his reinterpretation of traditional Greek recipes. Diners can browse the ‘Raw Bar’ featuring a variety of fresh seafood, from tuna and salmon to sea bream sashimi and Greek ceviche. Appetizers include a selection of classic spreads (Tzatziki, Spicy Feta, Hummus) with pita, Grilled Meatballs, Saganaki Cheese (with ouzo and pear, flambéed tableside) and Baby Squid with Bottarga.
Main dishes are designed to be simple yet satisfying. Each pasta dish offers hearty portions made for four and the selection includes Seafood, Vegetable, Lobster or Clams and Bottarga. Guests can opt for a range of seafood dishes (Whole Roasted Lobster, Salmon. Shrimps Mikrolimano) or traditional meats (Whole Chicken, Rack of Lamb, Ribeye and Filet Mignon).
The dessert menu ranges from the traditional (Loukoumades, Walnut Cake, Lemon Semolina) to the tantalising (Yoghurt Mousse Bar, Tsoureki Brioche).
“KEIA offers traditional Greek cuisine in a sophisticated setting,” explains Andrade. “Our intention is to present authentic flavours and to blend traditional dishes with creative cooking techniques.”
Located on the 2nd floor of H QUEEN’S, KEIA’s full-length windows offer views over bustling Queen’s Road Central. The restaurant’s elegant, contemporary interiors were designed by the award-winning Sundukovy Sisters. Having founded their design and architecture studio in 2004, twins Irina and Olga Sundukovy boast a global portfolio of projects and were named the 2018 Designers of the Year at the prestigious Gold Key Awards New York. While their design draws references from classic Greek architecture and mosaic art, they have imbued the space with sleek, modern touches, from the brass finishes to the pendant lighting. With a blend of natural raw materials – including stone, marble and wood – and an abundance of natural light, KEIA conveys an inviting mood of warmth and understated elegance.
“With the successful launch of ICHU Peru, the Bulldozer Group is excited to expand our presence in Hong Kong and present exceptional Greek cuisine at KEIA,” said Alexander Orlov, President of Bulldozer Group.
KEIA will be open daily for lunch (12:00 – 15:00 hrs) and dinner (18:00 pm – 23:00 hrs). Reservations can be made via firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting +852 2677 7737.
