What we had: The white-on-blue Greek restaurant at the posh St. Regis Bal Harbour evokes Mykonos with a polished, serene atmosphere. The spice menu here is served for dinner seven nights a week and highlights fish and seafood. A choice of three appetizers includes a Royal Dorade tartare, feta meli and marinated octopus. We went with the tartare which went well with a citrusy pergamont juice, chives and capers. The bread service here includes a generous pour of Greek olive oil, black olive tapenade and a roasted pepper coulis. Octopus and Royal Dorade show up in the mains again, along with slow-braised short rib, which comes with carrot horseradish mousseline. For dessert try something different with the Bougatsa, a phyllo crust stuffed with semolina cream, cinnamon, orange gel, Greek yogurt sorbet. Overall a great fine dining experience that touches on the best of Greek cuisine with modern techniques.

Who should go to this venue: Since this is a hotel, families would be welcome here, though the prices and atmosphere lean more to subdued conversation and intimate meetings.
