XIOS Authentic Greek Cuisine in Apex is celebrating the launch of its new menu, and is sharing the fun by giving away more than $25,000 in food and gift certificates to customers in March. Prizes include free desserts, appetizers, entrees and $25, $50 and $100 gift cards.
“We celebrated XIOS’ five-year anniversary last year and decided it was time to shake things up a bit — Greek style,” said owner Denise Hatzidakis. ”So we’re refreshing the restaurant’s look and revamping the menu — from traditional Greek favorites to new signature dishes — the fresh new menu has something for everyone.”
New menu items include a new Island Salad with shrimp and scallops; Veggie and Shrimp Gyros; Pan-seared Grouper; Vegetarian Pikili; and a XIOS Sampler of three classic Greek entrees: pastitsio, moussaka and gemista, just to name a few.
The Greek island of Xios, home to the Hatzidakis family for generations, is known for its polite and peaceful residents who welcome visitors and guests with kindness and hospitality. Kirk Hatzidakis and his wife, Denise, a Raleigh native, opened the restaurant in 2004 using century-old recipes from the Hatzidakis family.
