Kipos Hellenic Cuisine- the newest extension of Giorgios Bakatsias' wildly popular Kipos brand, celebrates the food and culture of his homeland – this time with a intentional focus on the sea.
Kipos Hellenic Cuisine offers an elevated counterpoint to Bakatsias’ beloved and more rustic Kipos Greek Taverna located in Chapel Hill, NC. “We are really excited to bring our love for the coastal cooking of Greece to Wilmington,” explains Bakatsias, who learned to garden and cook with his mother in the quiet village of Karista, Greece.
Kipos – which means “garden” – is surrounded by a lush covered garden patio. Guests can expect an authentic Greek menu – including Greek wines, as well as a convivial, bright, white and airy Mediterranean setting.
In addition to traditional Greek dishes like Avgolemono, Yiouvetsi and Moussaka found at Kipos in Chapel Hill, the Wilmington location features an abundance of seafood – with 80% or more being sourced locally -- including fresh crudos and a large selection of seafood entrees like pan seared grouper, grilled whole fish, and NC shrimp.
