Bahari The Hellenic Palate Overview

Take a break from Melbourne‘s CBD to taste the distinctly ‘Gringlish’ (Greek / English) flavours of Bahari The Hellenic Palate as it spices up Swan Street, Richmond. Anticipate an ever-changing menu hanging from a street sign display under the glow of drop lights and enjoy an intimate dining experience on country style seating. Tassie duo, Chef and Restaurateur Philip Vakos from Masterchef Series 2 and friend Stell Kaponas, enjoy the freedom of not publishing a set menu, instead choosing to explore the fine art of balancing spices and seasonal flavours in contemporary Greek dishes like grilled octopus with ouzo, lemon and oregano. Greek food is traditionally enjoyed together among family and friends and Bahari invites all who enter to do the same with easily accessible share style plates.

A few words from Bahari The Hellenic Palate

‘Bahari' pronounced, ‘Ba-HA-ree', is the Greek word for ‘spice' or ‘all spice'.

Having grown up in Tasmania, spending hours in the kitchen with two Cretan grandmothers, Philip was taught that balancing spice in Greek food was a fine art, ‘Keep it simple, but keep them guessing' they said.

This cosy and intimate space enables Philip the freedom to really express his palate, by constantly reinventing the way traditional Greek food is enjoyed by his guests.
