A brand new Greek bar and restaurant, Cuzina, opens its doors on Radcliffe Road, West Bridgford soon. See details.
Owner Nicholas Procopiou, 27, who lives in West Bridgford, set up the new venture to bring modern and traditional authentic Greek cuisine to the town.
Cuzina [gr.Κουζινα] means kitchen in Greek.
Nicholas said, ‘Cuzina is going to be a bit different. We’re trying to be a modern restaurant but we’ve still got lots of the traditional dishes too.’
‘We’ve taken inspiration from the London Greek restaurants and modern Greek islands in terms of style and food. We’ll be serving things like halloumi wrapped in bacon served with mango chutney and spanakopita spring rolls.’
Nick added, ‘I’m very excited. There’s been a lot of hard work involved and we can’t wait to open the doors.’
The dessert menu is to-die-for –
Loukoumades – Greek ‘puffed’ donuts served with a choice of: Nutella sauce and vanilla ice cream – Honey, nuts, cinnamon and vanilla, ice cream and Kormos – chocolate and biscuit cake served with ice cream to name two of the specialities pictured below;
Bar manager Sophie Kyriacou told us, ‘There is a large selection of cocktails and three mocktails, some of which are my own twist on traditional recipes’
Nick said, ‘The bar area at the front of the restaurant has a casual, friendly atmosphere where people can pop in for a drink with friends.’
