KDHamptons writer Sarah Stone shares a view into the enchanting world of Elaia Estiatorio, a Greek culinary haven nestled in the heart of Bridgehampton, where every dish tells a story and every sip is a celebration. At a private soiree hosted by the illustrious owner, Sofia Crokos, guests embarked on a culinary voyage unlike any other, where the flavors of Greece intertwined with the spirit of empowerment and excellence.

Under Sofia’s expert guidance, we savored each moment of the meticulously curated wine pairing dinner — a symphony of flavors orchestrated to perfection. From the tantalizing appetizers to the decadent desserts, each course was a testament to Sofia’s unwavering commitment to culinary excellence and her profound appreciation for Greek heritage.

Elaia Estiatorio boasts an impressive wine list curated with care and precision. Sofia’s husband, Chris Boudouris, is the owner of Bridgehampton Wine Cellar; the biggest wine and spirit retailer in Bridgehampton. Chris’s expertise in oenology is evident in every bottle, with a focus on Greek wines and spirits that perfectly complement the flavors of the Mediterranean. Together, Sofia and Chris, alongside their talented chef, have crafted a menu that pays homage to their Greek roots while embracing the bounty of local ingredients.
