Modern Greek dishes showcasing Aegean flavours, with an emphasis on large sharing plates of meze and seafood, all of which incorporate ingredients imported from Greece: fresh sea bass, fava beans from Santorini and kefalograviera cheese that’s set aflame tableside. When indoor dining is permitted, guests seated at the bar will be able to order from a menu of smaller plates that feed one or two. Coming soon: weekend brunch.
Cocktails, most of which are made with Greek liqueurs like Metaxa, ouzo and mastiha. The wine list is stocked with an eclectic collection of Greek bottles, rounded out by other Mediterranean options.
Myth is the second coming of the hospitality group’s original (now closed) Greek restaurant, Myth on Danforth. It took seven months for Irfan Bukhari of Bukhari Design to transform the E.C. Gurney & Co. Stove Foundry building into a 5,000-square-foot slice of Mykonos. At full capacity, it will seat 150 guests inside, 60 outside. For now, there is limited seating on the leafy streetside patio.
