Mikonos Grill, Milpitas CA | Merchant Profile

Mikonos Grill opened January 2008 and is an award winning Greek restaurant located in the Bay Area of Milpitas, California. This is the third restaurant opened by Owner Joel Quinoes; his brother Elias Ramirez oversees the day to day operations of Mikonos Grill. The fresh flavors and unique tastes of Mikonos keeps locals and travelers alike coming back for me.   When Owner Joel and his family immigrated from Greece to the United States, he immediately began working in the restaurant industry as a dishwasher. At a young age, Joel aspired to work his way up the kitchen ranks and learn everything he could about cooking. Joel started as a dishwasher and eventually became the head chef of the restaurant where he met his business partner. In 1988, they opened their first restaurant together in Cambell, Yiasso (meaning, "hello, goodbye, God bless you" in Greek). In 1990, the partners expanded Yiasso to a second location in Cupertino – you can still find and visit all three locations today.   Mediterranean cuisine is hard to come by in Milpitas, but thankfully Mikonos Grill provides the area with their amazing food.
