Founders, Ioannis Sotiropolous and Efthymios Paliouras’s love for the American culture started since their childhood. They learned to love the United States by watching American movies and documentaries. Growing up in Athens, Greece a city that its known for its love of socializing over good food, great coffee and beautiful cafes, they saw an opportunity to bring that love and culture to the American people.

KAÏA Greek is where Mykonos is highlighted in perfect harmony, where everyone can discover Aegean Cuisine with a sophisticated appeal. The restaurant features fresh and farm-to-table Mediterranean ingredients and flavors while tying in classic greek cocktails and wines curated by a Greek sommelier. KAÏA means "From The Earth," and the eatery embodies all the beautiful things the Earth provides from its vegetation, fresh catch, lovely people, and experiences. KAÏA Greek was conceptualized by Greek friends who own restaurants in Greece and Miami to bring a piece of their homeland to the Coral Gables.
