Combining contemporary American fare with chef-owner Ilias Kakouris's particular brand of Mediterranean fusion, Brutole on Route 1 serves urbane fare in a suburban setting. Just 20 minutes outside the city in Danvers, the restaurant attracts a steady flow of both corporate and casual diners with a menu that pulls from French, Italian and Greek culinary traditions and styles.
Kakouris, who keeps an eye on all the goings-on in the open kitchen, has made sure the menu has something for everyone with an extensive kids menu and elaborate pizza offerings. He'll even cater your corporate event through their full service catering company, Exclusive Chefs.
Brutole, with its award-winning interior design and relaxing atmosphere, also boasts one of the longest martini bars north of Boston. The bar program also includes a fine selection of domestic and imported beers, wines and champagnes to complete any dining experience.
Chef-owner Ilias Kakouris, Executive Chef of Brutole Restaurant, has been a driving force of innovation to the North Shore culinary scene for over 22 years.
Formally trained under the guidance of world class chef Nicholas Peter Valhouli, Kakouris apprenticed for 10 grueling years, learning his craft from his mentor. Chef Valhouli spent 7 years in Tokyo as a celebrity chef, design consultant and television personality and is noted as being an integral force behind Japan's culinary revolution during the 1980s.
German born and of Greek heritage, Chef Kakouris combines his European upbringing and a passion for wholesome ingredients to bring a refreshing approach to contemporary Mediterranean and American cuisines.
