The Papas family, who is known for making its mark on Greektown, owning and operating the Atheneum Suite Hotel and Conference Center, A Bar, Pegasus Taverna, Mosaic and Santorini Estiatorio, has added a new destination to their roster: Symposia, a Mediterranean-inspired fine dining restaurant located within the Atheneum Suite Hotel. Featuring a menu created by Executive Chef Elliot Patti, Symposia highlights the Mediterranean region inspired by Greece, Italy, Spain and more. Signature dishes will include roasted beet with whipped feta, pickled strawberry, and green harissa; Spanish octopus with Romesco, Yukon potato, and chorizo iberico; prawn bucatini with Greek olive oil, garlic, blistered tomato, confit lemon, Kalamata olives, fried parsley; Australian lamb chop; Amish half bird, with harissa, crème fraiche and an olive oil cake with pistachio, orange and honey-whipped Greek yogurt. “Since we opened Mosaic and Santorini Estiatorio, we’ve been eager to introduce another restaurant concept in the Greektown district,” said Athina Papas, executive at the Atheneum Suite Hotel. “Symposia will build on our commitment to preserving the cultural aspects of the area, as well as enhancing the community moving forward.” With a seating capacity of 65, Symposia will be open for dinner Tuesday-Saturday.
