Recap of Meze Night at Kefi Lounge

Kalofagas Jan 22 Kefi-2400This past Thursday Kefi Lounge on the Danforth was the locale of my latest Greek Supper Club. The evening’s menu consisted entirely of Greek meze (appetizers) and all the dishes will be paired with wine and beverages from Kolonaki Group.

All the dishes were made using Cretan olive oil from Nisos Importing.

I would like to thank George Keroglidis of Kefi Lounge, the staff for their support and tremendous hospitality on the event night. Kefi Lounge is a great venue for a work or family related function with cocktails, appetizers all wrapped in a casual, elegant space.

Thank you to Chef Carm Accogli and Nikos Koulokouris for their help in the kitchen and my servers, Andria, Laura and Tania.

Thank you to all who attended, the meze night was a huge success and I’ll organize another one soon! Here’s the round-up, with fab photos from Christina Kakaletris.
