Johnny Monis was only 24-years old when he opened Komi, a consistently top-ranked restaurant located in Washington, D.C.
Komi is unique – serving multi-course dinners for $135 per person ($205 with wine pairing) to 14 small tables. By design, maximum seating is 40 people at any one time! Koni is a testament to Monis’ modern interpretation of Greek cuisine.
A winner of numerous accolades, Food & Wine declared Monis one of America’s best new chefs in 2007. And, he’s been a finalist for the coveted James Beard Award for Best Chef in the Mid-Atlantic.
Securing a table at Komi requires timing and effort – reservations are taken one month to the day in advance.
Dinner starts with 15 bite-sized Greek dishes, called mezzethakia. The next phase of the dining experience involves larger portions. Then comes the entrées, which are served communal style. Typical main courses maintain the Greek theme and include roast suckling pig, goat, veal chops, and whole fish.
It’s not unusual for more than 3 hours to pass before enjoying dessert – including Greek doughnuts, chocolates, pastry, and gelées.
