The ultimate gastronomic encounter of the summer!
It could have been referred to as the summer’s significant transition. Famous chef Tassos Mantis and head chef Dimitris Vratsidis, come together from “Summer Senses Luxury Resort” in Paros, to Zoga of Tinos, which was recently named one of the top restaurants in contemporary Greek cuisine for 2022 at the FNL Best Restaurant Awards 2022.
The BEST RESTAURANT AWARDS was established in 2016 supported by a multi-skilled committee of restaurant critics and food bloggers, to respected journalists and foodies from the world of gastronomy. It is an important and legitimate institution that awards the best restaurants in Athens, Salonika, Macedonia, Epirus, Thessaly, Central Greece, the Peloponnese, the Cyclades, and the Ionian islands with stars each year.
And so, Zoga was amongst the establishments that stood out in the Cyclades and was awarded a star since it excelled in its category as an extra fine and distinguished dining space. Its rich cuisine, its fresh raw materials, the refined flavour of its dishes, the remarkable and unique environment, the courtesy, and the service of its staff was what impressed the critics who awarded it with this special award.
Tassos Mantis began his culinary career in Greece as a key member of the Funky Gourmet team and after touring a number of awarded European kitchens –Peter Goossens’ legendary (3 star Michelin) Hof Van Cleve in Brussels, the (three-star Michelin) Geranium in Copenhagen, and the (three-star Michelin) Frantzen in Stockholm, he returned to Greece to take the helm of the one-star Michelin restaurant, Hytra.
As of this summer, Tassos Mantis will be the one curating Zoga’s menu. By his side, head chef Dimitris Vratsidis with whom he has previously joined forces with great success last summer in the “Summer Senses Luxury Resort” in Paros.
