It's hard not to compare Naxos Taverna to Estiatorio Milos, which set the standard for Greek-inspired seafood restaurants in Las Vegas. Naxos has a similar dining room with a bright, open layout and wood accents, adding up to a refreshing change of pace for the Red Rock Resort. The large tree between tables is a visual focal point, but most of your attention will be on the flown-in-fresh catch of the day, much of it from Mediterranean waters. Build your meal around a whole fish, either charcoal grilled or baked in a salt crust to showcase the natural flavors of the meat with minimal seasoning and a touch of the restaurant's own single-origin olive oil. The selection varies, but on any given night can include branzino, dover sole, fagri, barbounia, and more. Always begin with the house baked bread and your choice of dips. The muhammara is an easy favorite with the taste of roasted red pepper against bright, juicy pomegranate seeds. Chef Mark Andelbradt puts the grill to good use with vegetables too, especially the artichoke appetizer. A sister concept, Kallisto Oyster Bar, is just outside the front entrance, featuring its own seafood menu (including three takes on pan roast) in a more casual setting of just 13 seats.
