The heart of Greek cooking is to utilize what is around you, cook it simply and let the ingredients shine. While the restaurant will be respectful of Greek culinary traditions, it will also “break the rules” by exploring new possibilities for culinary self expression by utilizing New England sourced fish, meat and produce which might not usually be associated with Greek cuisine. Not being completely tied to tradition will allow the chefs the freedom to explore new techniques and a broader palette of ingredients with which to explore and expand upon Greek cookery.
Pelekasis is a pop up side project of Chef Brendan Pelley celebrating his passion for Greek cuisine. Pelley’s interest in Greek food is rooted in childhood memories of helping his mom pick spinach stems for spanikopita and the intoxicating scent of Sunday lamb roast at his papou’s house. A recent trip to Greece has left him inspired and in need of an outlet to share his own interpretations of this fun, honest, delicious cuisine.
Prior to the launch of Pelekasis at Wink & Nod, there will be a series of one night pop-up events. Next up we’ll be at the Commonwealth on November 16th. Call 617-945-7030 for reservations!
