Estia Greek Taverna Opening in Marlton


Estia Greek Taverna – Dining Room

The Pashalis family that owns Estia in Philadelphia is in expansion mode. Brothers Pete and Nick along with Pete’s brother-in-law, John Lois are bringing their take on Greek and Mediterranean cuisine to Marlton in early 2014. Estia Greek Taverna will replace the former Pietro’s (which they also own) at 140 W Route 70.

The decor features marble floors, rustic tables and a main dining room with a wood-slat ceiling. An olive tree oversees a table of artisanal breads. The menu is similar to Estia’s location on Locust Street with a focus on fresh Mediterranean fish (flown in daily from Greece) and Greek comfort food. Among the highlights is the Estia Grand Plateau, a shellfish plate that feeds two to four people, Lavraki, a Mediterranean sea bass, traditional Greek Moussaka and daily specials including short rib stefado.

Naturally, the Taverna has a liquor license and will sport a Greek-inspired cocktail program along with rare and domestic bottled beers.
