Michelin star chef Alex Xinis opens new Greek eatery in Melbourne


Alex Xinis, along with James Klapanis, is set to open a new Greek eatery called Orlo on Oxford Street in Collingwood, Melbourne this March.  

“I always had that dream to open my own restaurant… and I’m at that stage of my career and life where I’m ready for it — I’m really excited,” Xinis said in an interview with The Herald Sun.

The new restaurant will feature Xinis’ famous flatbread, alongside traditional Greek food with a “veg-forward” spin.

Orlo’s menu will be veg-forward but there’ll be a spattering of seafood and meat,” he said.

“We’ll have those flatbreads as a mezze for starters, as well as hand rolled leek pies, whole-roasted cauliflowers and grilled leeks with a simple dressing.”

The restaurant will include 150 seats, a street-level front bar, dinning room, courtyard and mezzanine.
