The team behind behind the renowned Turkish restaurant group, Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine with locations in Dr Phillips, Lake Nona, Winter Parka nd Winter Garden are planing a brand new restaurant concept.

Parea Greek Taverna is a fresh and innovative concept coming to Maitland. Taking over the former Outpost space at 111 S. Orlando Avenue, Maitland, this exciting project is set to bring a whole new dining experience to the area this fall.

"Parea” is the Greek word for company and is often used to refer to a close circle of friends. “This word with a beautiful meaning perfectly encapsulates the atmosphere we aim to create in our Greek taverna," explains owner Alexandra Kopatsis Southern.

Drawing inspiration from their deep-rooted Greek heritage, the husband-and-wife duo, Chris and Alexandra alongside their business partners Doved and Tammy Sexter are passionate about preserving and sharing their family traditions through food. With recipes passed down through generations, they are excited to offer these beloved dishes to the Orlando community.

Expect to find all the classic Greek favorites on the menu, alongside some creative additions that showcase the unique flavors of Greece. From Yiayia Phyllis' lemon potatoes to Yiayia Koula's bougatsa, each dish is a labor of love that promises to delight diners.

Renowned designer Ray Schaefer of Gravity Architecture & Design is leading the restaurant's aesthetic, aiming to transport guests to a rustic Greek taverna with warm wood tones, stone accents, and subtle hints of blue. The result is an immersive dining experience that celebrates Greek culture and hospitality.

Having successfully grown the Bosphorous brand over the years, owner Doved Sexter is thrilled to embark on this new chapter. With a dedicated team and a passion for Mediterranean cuisine, they are excited to introduce Parea Greek Taverna to the local community and beyond. This is not just a restaurant—it's a celebration of family, togetherness, and the joy of sharing good food."
