 1821-greek-restaurant-sydney
The restaurant is a project of the love and passion from my Hellenic roots. It is a project that I can claim proudly to be 100% Greek idea, design, decoration and materials. With this in mind I have created a space made in Greece. Welcome to 1821.
— Jim Kospetas, Owner
Throughout history, Hellenes have shared their table with family and friends as a show of hospitality and generosity. I have designed this menu with inspiration from my experiences and philosophy taught through Greek ages. The Odyssey may have begun in Greece, but it has now found its home, here in 1821.
— David Tsirekas, Executive Chef

 
 

The philiosophy of the Greek table is that we share our experience together through food, drink, conversation and good times. With this in mind this menu is tailored for the maximum enjoyable experience as share plates. The dishes go from the lightest in palate to the heaviest.
