Mideastro Yorkville
Mediterranean | Yorkville
73 reviews

Mideastro is a bolt from the blue, er, Vaughan. Mediterranean fusion, Middle Eastern Plus. Chef Benny Cohen is wonderfully brash: He shows just why the Middle East is the spicemeister of the world and he mixes traditions with élan. Fish cocktails are glasses of chopped tuna-tabule salad mixed with different liquors. Couscous, the ME’s fave starch, is handrolled to perfection matched with seafood, drenched in a rich, winey sauce. And there are no meatballs in town to rival the spicy kufta, ground lamb and beef under a foccacia lid with hot yogourt and tahina sauce.

Since we opened, we've been called a
number of things.
Some say Trinity.
Others say Modern Greek Taverna. We've also been called

So after months of careful consideration, we've realized we
need a name that truly defines us.
Our identity in a single word.
Allow us to reintroduce ourselves.
We are Paralia.

Paralia

Paralia is more than a great place on the beach. It's the
feeling of being transported to another world. To a vibrant
seaside village where the white sand meets the turquoise
blue waters of the Aegean.
Where the ocean is part of everyday life and every night is
a celebration. Where the best ingredients from the land and
sea meet.
