Finding Inspiration AT Every Turn

The name Byzantium derives from the Byzantine empire, which at its height had conquered most of the Mediterranean coast, including Italy, Greece, North Africa and Turkey. Byzantium was a metropolis of spices and exotic recipes from all corners of its vast empire. The food of medieval Constantinople was a fusion combining Roman culinary practices with Greek, Turkish and Eastern Orthodox cuisine. Byzantium Tapas Restaurant aims to replicate the culinary vibrancy of that cross-cultural exchange by offering you an explosion of different but complimentary tastes. Come join us for a journey across the Mediterranean Sea, sampling its rich food treasures with friends and family.
