Domes Resorts opens first standalone restaurant

The new fine-dining restaurant marks a new concept for Domes, as well as a new location and direction for the brand, which is seeking to evolve from a hotel- and resort-only group to a lifestyle hospitality brand, featuring not only standalone restaurants but also beach clubs and mixology bars in the future.

Makris restaurants have been extremely popular across a variation of Domes’ luxury hotels such as flagship Domes Miramare in Corfu. Now, Chef Petros Dimas and his team are offering Domes’ signature à la carte and degustation menus to guests in mainland Greece. Housed in a Neo-Classical three-story building in Thisio, Makris by Domes’ ground floor comprises a sophisticated and atmospheric dining space seating for up to 40 covers, while the impressive cellar extends further seating with a glass floor to view historical remains and artefacts. For example, the remains of the Eleusis Inn were restored and respected by the architectural office Makridis Associates from Thessaloniki, while all the design elements of the restaurant were created by art director Stefanos Malamas. There is also an intimate private space above the ruins named Aktiki, the first name of Athens.
