Poseidon Greek Restaurant & Outdoor Lounge has made its new home in South Beach and now hungry diners who crave the fabulous flavors of Greek, Mediterranean and seafood cuisine can check out this new eatery. At Poseidon, the chefs follow Hippocrates recommendation that “food be thy medicine”, by crafting healthy dishes rather than making popsicles from cough syrup.
They sprinkle their recipes with krocus kozanis, a golden Greek spice, and infuses meals with oregano, rosemary, and thyme culled from the Taygetos Mountain of Kalamata. They also import fresh fish from the Aegean Sea before brushing salmon with extra virgin olive oil and tossing pasta with a medley of shellfish. Slick white tables and cool blue walls recall a refreshing day spent among the blue and white abodes lining the Greek shores of the Mediterranean.
Prepare yourselves for a culinary journey to Greece through this wonderful experience and taste. Plus, with one of the best outdoor dining areas!
