Ethos serves authentic Greek & Mediterranean Cuisine – ethos is a Greek word meaning “character” or the fundamental values of cultures, ideas and customs. In short, the distinct spirit of a culture.

They have a contemporary ambiance and serve a modern take on most of their dishes that derive from family recipes past down from generations. Ethos Greek Bistro’s cooking style is vastly based on the native island of Crete, situated at the most southern part of Greece and surrounded by the Aegean and Mediterranean seas. Crete, the birthplace of the Mediterranean diet, is considered to be light, mainly vegetarian and seafood-based with less emphasis on red meats and pasta.

Influenced by one of the healthiest cuisines known, the goal of ethos is to showcase  their unique take on authentic Greek and Mediterranean cuisine through an exciting array of modernized dishes for today’s palette. Their meze style plating is best when sampled by all. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.  They are proud to be the  Coconut Creek. Some favorites include: Tzatziki with fresh pita, Hummus with fresh pita, Greek salad, falafels,  calamari, lamb chops, Branzino, grilled shrimp, steak, and amazing salads. You can find Ethos in Promenade Shopping Center at Coconut Creek.

Sette Messo

Sette Mezzo is one of my favorite local hangouts for Italian food and to see a familiar face in Coconut Creek. Rita and her husband, Franco Filippone, are the owners  and he is the Chef of Sette, he started his career in the restaurant business at the side of his father, after the family emigrated from  Palermo, Sicily to open their now historic restaurant in upstate New York. After a long apprenticeship in the family restaurant, Franco relocated to South Florida, where he applied his culinary skills at such world class restaurants. The service at Sette is second to non, say hello to my favorite server, Queta. Some of the favorites on the menu include:  Arancini, (saffron rice balls with meat, peas, and mozzarella in the center), Bianca’s meatballs, served over ricotta cheese and topped with Pomodoro sauce, Rita’s vongole, little neck clams simmered in a garlic or Pomodoro wine broth with spaghetti,  Pappardelle con Pollo ,garlic, oil, roasted tomatoes, chicken, porcini mushrooms, and arugula, chicken Parmigiana, veal, chicken marsala, pasta and pizza’s are also excellent. Certainly a favorite here in Coconut Creek.

Saitos Hibachi

Saito’s is my favorite local spot for Hibachi here in Coconut Creek. The Hibachi chef’s always do a great job of presenting their cooking in a style that is both fun and entertaining.  This Japanese steakhouse has an enormous variety of sushi, sashimi, temaki, hosomaki and house special rolls, as well as lobster, shrimp, scallops and calamari. The hibachi chefs slice, dice and toss some of the most succulent Kobe beef and filet, along with chicken and even ostrich.

Teriyaki menu items include Chilean sea bass, scallops, ostrich and duck, while stir fry selections include lobster, shrimp, Kobe beef and tofu. Saito’s offers a variety of tempura dishes like combination tempura, which is lightly-battered jumbo shrimp, chicken and vegetables, as well as seafood tempura, which includes jumbo shrimp, fish, crab, and vegetables.

Guests enjoy sitting at the sushi bar or lively hibachi-style dining. The hibachi chefs slice, dice, toss, and prepare meals directly in front of their patrons. Whether it’s teriyaki, stir fry, tempura (lightly battered), katsu (deep fried), sushi, or hibachi, our restaurant serves plenty of Asian food in Coconut Creek.

This is the newest addition to our list of eateries in Coconut Creek.  This is a unique place for both authentic tacos and authentic sushi. They  are breaking the seal. A fusion of the best of “Mexi-Crasian” food culture mixed with everything great about South Florida. When I was there, I had the most amazing sushi taco, I had ever tasted.
