Yeah We Was There: MP Taverna (Roslyn)

A ‘Hellenic Modern’ concept by chef Michael Psilakis, of Fishtag and Kefi, void of bouzouki, yiayia, and faux Acropolis columns.


The beer portfolio, ten drafts and 40 bottles, is classified by “flavor profile,” according to manager George Pappas.

“This allows customers to better pair beer with their meal and help to complement one another.”


Category Examples: ‘Dark, Bold & Strong,’ ‘Full Flavored Unique Beers,’ ‘Hoppy or Bitter Ales’

Beer Examples: Brewery Ommegang Witte, Maredsous Tripel, Southampton Publick House Grand Cru, Stone Brewing Company Arrogant Bastard


“We purchased about sixty or seventy different beers and had a staff tasting at the restaurant, and we all picked the best beers for our food,” said Pappas. “Beer has been a big hit for us so far, more than wine and liquor.”

Pappas hopes to rotate MP Taverna’s beer selection, similar to the menu, based on season.
