This new Restaurant, Estiatorio Keia will serve Greek and Mediterranean flavours at the H Queen’s in Hong Kong.
Following the successful launch of ICHU Peru in H Queen’s, Dubai-based hospitality company Bulldozer Group will debut its latest venture, Estiatorio KEIA, at the end of December.
Highlighting Greek cuisine, impeccably fresh seafood and Mediterranean flavours, the focus is on shared dishes, seasonal menus, and modern cooking techniques.
The menu is curated and developed by Executive Chef Drew Andrade, in consultation with Alexis Zopas, a Mykonos-based chef from the ultra-hip Scorpios restaurant who has earned respect for his reinterpretation of traditional Greek recipes. Diners can browse the ‘Raw Bar’ featuring a variety of fresh seafood, from tuna and salmon to sea bream sashimi and Greek ceviche. Appetizers include a selection of classic spreads (Tzatziki, Spicy Feta, Hummus) with pita, Grilled Meatballs, Saganaki Cheese (with ouzo and pear, flambéed tableside) and Baby Squid with Bottarga.
Main dishes are designed to be simple yet satisfying. Each pasta dish offers hearty portions made for four and the selection includes Seafood, Vegetable, Lobster or Clams and Bottarga. Guests can opt for a range of seafood dishes (Whole Roasted Lobster, Salmon. Shrimps Mikrolimano) or traditional meats (Whole Chicken, Rack of Lamb, Ribeye and Filet Mignon).
The dessert menu ranges from the traditional (Loukoumades, Walnut Cake, Lemon Semolina) to the tantalising (Yoghurt Mousse Bar, Tsoureki Brioche).
“KEIA offers traditional Greek cuisine in a sophisticated setting,” explains Andrade. “Our intention is to present authentic flavours and to blend traditional dishes with creative cooking techniques.”
Chef Andrade rose through the ranks in Los Angeles’ most prestigious establishments. Prior to fronting KEIA, he honed his skills at Wolfgang Puck’s celebrated Spago restaurant where he was Sous Chef for three years. He later worked alongside Virgilio Martinez at his award-winning Central restaurant in Lima, Peru. Joining Bulldozer Group in 2015, he oversaw the culinary direction of the group’s various restaurants in Dubai, Miami, and Russia.
Located on the 2nd floor of H QUEEN’S, KEIA’s full-length windows offer views over bustling Queen’s Road Central. Moreover, the restaurant’s elegant, yet contemporary interiors are designed by the award-winning, Sundukovy Sisters. Having founded their design and architecture studio in 2004, twins Irina and Olga Sundukovy boast a global portfolio of projects. While their design draws references from classic Greek architecture and mosaic art, they have imbued the space with sleek, modern touches, from the brass finishes to the pendant lighting. With a blend of natural raw materials – including stone, marble, and wood – and an abundance of natural light, KEIA conveys an inviting mood of warmth and understated elegance.
KEIA will be open daily for lunch (12pm-3pm) and dinner (6pm-11pm). Reservations can be made via email@example.com or by contacting +852 2677 7737.
