Who is Behind the New Mazi Restaurant?
Red Hook native Taso is the man behind Mazi and he is "over the moon" with this chance to share his family’s Greek origins with his hometown. Taso was always drawn to the bustling energy of the kitchen, where his family would gather to prepare elaborate meals for special occasions and everyday dinners alike according to the Mazi website.
"I learned early to appreciate the power of food to bring people together and to create a sense of community and connection that went beyond just satisfying hunger."
"Foodies" will enjoy how Taso has incorporated traditional Greek flavors and techniques into his cooking while also infusing his dishes with his own creative twists.
