Canada has finally given us something worthwhile aside from Justin Bieber and a smug sense of pride: totally authentic Greek food! That's right, Montreal's Hellenic haven Milos has landed South of Fifth in a half-market/ half-Grecian country house outfitted with Mediterranean dock lanterns, huge urns, and a marble installation hand-cut from the mountains of Dionysus that weighs 13000lbs, or the current total value of the British economy.
What you need to know:
The Sustenance: After apps like sheep's milk-stuffed calamari, your server will walk you over to the fish market to pick out whole swimmers (red snapper, king fish, Nova Scotia lobsters, etc) you'll get charged for by weight (luckily theirs, not yours). And while there's no Colorado lamb chops market, you can also order those or other land-meats like a Creekstone Tomahawk ribeye.
The "Marketa": The dining-room-adjacent take-out market (which also hosts a communal table) houses an imported-everything lineup ranging from olive oil-soaked potatoes, pastas, and homemade hummus, to thyme honey from the isle of Kythira and "My Sister's Olive Oil", also what Popeye's gf's bro says when Bluto won't let her into clubs.
The Drinks: They've got basically anything you need other than Red Dog, including
Red Dog Light 150+ vinos, serious Scotches (Macallan 21, Glenmorangie 25), grappa (duh!), and a select few cocktails like the Woodford Reserve/ Marketa fig syrup/ Fee Brothers Black Walnut Bitters "Old World", the entirety of which is currently worth less than the drink.
