DINING

MAZI – Launches on October 1

MAZI, which means ‘together’ in Greek, is set to offer a memorable dining experience to its patrons thanks to a wide selection of unique and exquisite cuisine from Greece and its vibrant atmosphere.

Having opened its first branch in Notting Hill, in the west of London in 2012, MAZI is no ordinary Greek restaurant. With the vision of owners – dynamic husband and wife team Adrien Carré and Christina Mouratoglou – it rapidly became a popular restaurant by interpreting old-time classic recipes with a modern twist and sharing dishes.

Located at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, the newest and first branch of MAZI to launch outside of London invites guests to enjoy a menu consisting of some bestsellers from home as well as a range of unique dishes that reflect the culinary culture of Greece.

Christina and Adrien introduce authentic Greek flavors with their own innovative twist, while placing emphasis on sharing a feast of a variety of dishes. They use recipes that rely on classic techniques and contemporary presentation to achieve the best results in addition to the use of the finest, fresh ingredients – some sourced directly from Greece.

The main objective of MAZI is to connect people who are united in their passion for fresh and tasty food. An exciting new menu has been created for the Abu Dhabi restaurant, breathing new life, color and flavor into the worn stereotypes of Greek cuisine. It is the concept of sharing fun moments together with friends and family in a casual and contemporary setting that will make each visit even more memorable.
