Kleos

Downtown gets transported to Greece at Westnimster Street's newest hot spot

Posted

The Greek concept of “philoxenia,” meaning “love of stranger,” is a philosophy that is near and dear to the hearts of Lauren Lynch and Tom Bovis, spouses and owners of the new Greek hot spot downtown called Kleos. In a Mediterranean-esque atmosphere where everyone is made to feel like family, Tom and Lauren serve rustic yet upscale Greek dishes with homemade charm. Opt for something light and refreshing, like the Greek-style ceviche made with Mediterranean prawns, mussels and calamari and tossed with cucumber, watermelon, citrus, ginger and mint. Or choose something more savory and robust, like the made-for-sharing Mixed Grill, which includes Colorado lamb chops, grilled beef, lamb kebabs and authentic loukaniko Greek sausage served with fries, pita and house tzatziki. Uniquely Greek cocktail offerings make great accompaniments to dinner. A must-try is the Karpuzzi Kocktail, a blend of Skinos Maticha, lemon and muddled watermelon and topped with Greek sparkling rosé.
