Yamas Greek + Drink – Opening Soon
One of the most popular restaurants to emerge onto the foodie scene last year was Opa Bar + Mezze – a Santorini-inspired eatery that opened on the gently lapping banks of the Brisbane River back in April. In a few months time, Opa will score a sibling in the form of Yamas Greek + Drink, a similarly seafood-focused locale taking up residence at West Village at some point in Autumn. The restaurant is the latest venture from Michael Tassis and Caio Rosetto the experienced brains behind Eagle Street venues like Opa, Massimo Restaurant & Bar, Fatcow Steak & Lobster, Rico Bar & Dining and George’s Paragon. Yamas will continue Opa’s Greek-centric mantra, using the portside town of Thessaloniki – a key gateway to the Aegean Sea – as the regional inspiration for the restaurant’s menu. Although details are being kept largely a secret for now, we’ve been told to expect the likes of lamb kleftiko (slow-cooked lamb leg), chargrilled lobster served with capers and ladolemono sauce, and wagyu beef moussaka. Complementing the food will be an extensive wine selection and a clutch of transportive cocktails to wash down your feast. Keep your peepers peeled for more information on Yamas Greek + Drink closer to its official opening date.
