"We're emphasizing fresh, quality ingredients, with a good-sized menu, at a midrange price point," says Mylona. The final version of the menu is in the works, though it will center around the restaurant's wood-burning rotisserie.
Slated to open in late May, the 7,000-square-foot Fort Lauderdale restaurant will seat 260, including patio seating.

"Everything is white," says Mylona, to create a look that's inspired by the island.
We'll keep you posted on the menu, construction, and opening date as it nears.
