LET’S GO GREEK!
Mazi, which means ‘together’ in Greek, is set to offer a memorable dining experience to its patrons thanks to a wide selection of unique and exquisite cuisine from Greece and its vibrant atmosphere.
HAVING OPENED ITS FIRST branch in Notting Hill, in the west of London in 2012, MAZI is no ordinary Greek restaurant. With the vision of owners – dynamic husband and wife team Adrien Carré and Christina Mouratoglou – it rapidly became a popular restaurant by interpreting old-time classic recipes with a modern twist and sharing dishes.
Located at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, the newest and first branch of MAZI to launch outside of London invites guests to enjoy a menu consisting of some bestsellers from home as well as a range of unique dishes that reflect the culinary culture of Greece.
Christina and Adrien introduce authentic Greek flavours with their own innovative twist, while placing emphasis on sharing a feast of a variety of dishes. They introduce recipes that rely on classic techniques and contemporary presentation to achieve the best results in addition to the use of the finest, fresh ingredients – some sourced directly from Greece.
“Our vision is to show the world how innovative, refined and creative Greek food can be. We derive our inspiration from childhood memories and the Mediterranean table, and we reinterpret them with a contemporary twist,” says Christina Mouratoglou, co-owner of MAZI.
“The idea is to revive Greece’s sharing culinary tradition in what we like to call a ‘fine-casual’ atmosphere. Our guests can expect to find a fun place to enjoy some great food combined with the intimate service of a fine-dining restaurant.”
The main objective of MAZI as a brand is to connect people who are united in their passion for fresh and tasty food. An exciting new menu has been created for the Abu Dhabi restaurant, breathing new life, colour and flavour into the worn stereotypes of Greek cuisine. It is the concept of sharing fun moments together with friends and family in a casual and contemporary setting that will make each visit even more memorable.
The design of the new restaurant takes a modern approach to the rustic architecture and décor of Greek towns. It is home to a beautiful interior replete with carefully chosen elements like a traditional fishing boat at the entrance and door handles made of olive branches. The venue also features a cozy bar area as well as a terrace that features tables spaciously distributed within a garden of olive trees.
Reminiscent of some of Greece’s most beautiful cities, MAZI Abu Dhabi – which can house up to 120 guests – boasts a playful take on bright blue and mustard yellow furniture and wall décor, all carefully balanced in a sea of white. ✤
