From the distillation of the culinary traditions of Asia Minor, the famed cuisine of Constantinople compassed the traditions of what Greeks still call today “Politiki Kouzina” or “The Food of Constantinople”. Mikrasia is about redefining the classic Byzantine cuisine, fashioned in a different modern way. Inspired by the unraveling mysteries of Byzantine cuisine, our menu features flavored luxury food inspired by the multicultural character of Constantinople (Istanbul), bringing this vanished cuisine to life in vivid and astonishing flavors blending into sensual detail. Politiki Kouzina emerged from the practices and traditions of the luxurious culinary food served at the royal court, from the home cooked meals based on the oral tradition of passing down recipes and know-how from generation to generation, and from the street food of the markets where you could encounter some fine flavors and fusing spices. Committed to the Byzantine culture that never ceased to develop and to innovate, our aim is to preserve a little taste of what Byzantine food must have been like, based on the merging of different local ingredients and aromas that lead a burst of colors and flavors.
