The restaurant’s General Manager and Owner is Angelo Mitsotakis, cousin of Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, and the Co-Owner is Rodi Tzani.
“Mykonos Grill in Rockville feels suspended in time. The blue-trimmed depiction of a Greek village on white plaster walls is scenery I recall admiring the last time I dropped by — more than a decade ago — and the cooking tastes just as familiar. When Mitsotakis tells me some of his cooks have been around as long as the restaurant, which opened in 1998, I’m not surprised. The moussaka — sliced eggplant layered with meat and mashed potatoes so satiny they resemble custard — tastes as before. Lamb chops with lemony roast potatoes are still a path to pursue,” Sietsema writes.
The food critic was also impressed by the variety of choices on the menu.
“Grazers will appreciate the combination plates that fit lots of different tastes,” Sietsema noted in the article, adding that “the spreads, among them herbed white beans and fish roe whipped with potatoes, could fuel a small party, and a gathering of crackling spanakopita, moussaka, a lamb chop and lemon-sauced stuffed grape leaf goes down like a highlights reel of main courses. Specials include a catch of the day; say `yes’ to trout stuffed with spinach and feta.”
