With the whole of Greece’s hospitality front brushing up their backyard for the upcoming season opening, we take note of the most compelling argument on why going back to Mykonos should be on your summer list.
A space for spontaneous gatherings and ritual festivities is due to open in Chora on May 21st. And the British hospitality legend Richard Caring with our very own Greek Chef Athinagoras Kostakos are on centre stage.
Nōema embodies the open-hearted soul of Mykonos, where every occasion is an opportunity for a feast. In the Cycladic home, life centres around the courtyard, or avli. A secret garden protected from the elements, where family and friends come together to eat and drink, share stories and songs.
The rumor had been lingering amongst the hospitality circles for some time now. And while 2020 was not the year to venture out on pastures new, it seems like this project is finally taking shape in May 2021.
“Everything is inspired by what people have done for centuries in the Cyclades. Using ancient techniques to preserve whatever can be coaxed from the windswept landscapes or fished from the briny sea. Raw materials are pickled, fermented, cured, and sun-dried — transforming bare necessities into something beautiful and unexpected.“
