OPSO, a Greek-inspired dining concept, has opened its doors in Dubai this spring – marking the first international OPSO to open outside of the UK.
OPSO, which is Greek for “delectable morsel of food”, has roots in London’s fashionable Marylebone district. Now open in Dubai Mall, the restaurant offers guests a sharing-style menu created in its open kitchen, and served in its elegant, contemporary dining space.
The concept revolves around three sectors: OPSO Dining is its main restaurant area; OPSO Social is a more social space for friends to unwind in a relaxed environment; and OPSO Prive is a private hideaway for an exclusive evening out with mezze and shisha overlooking the Dubai fountains and Burj Khalifa.
The restaurant is the latest in a long line of Greek eateries to open in Dubai over the last year, the most well-known being chef Izu Ani’s concept GAIA (which has recently announced plans to expand globally) and OPA at Fairmont Dubai.
Taverna Greek Kitchen at Madinat Jumeirah and Ena at The Pointe are also popular outlets for Dubai diners, and will soon be joined by upcoming Greek concept from Costas Spilliadis at The Royal Atlantis, due to open by the end of the year.
