Make new business and personal connections while learning about new products and cuisine.


If you have been in Greece, one experience seems to be unforgettable: Greek cuisine and its recipes: so difficult in pronunciation but so unique in taste to be forgotten. Some of them are traditional national recipes, which originate far back in the past. Others are the inspirations of their creators, which have been established over time, and others are adaptations to the Greek reality.

The feta cheese PDO, Naxos gruyere cheese PDO, Thasos throumpa olive PDO, Fthiotida pistachio PDO, Zante Black Currant PDO, Zante Extra Virgin Olive Oil PGI, and Thasos Extra Virgin Olive Oil PGI, are authentic and unique products of the Greek land that are produced with the knowhow of local producers and raw materials from specific geographical areas. Become familiar with our authentically Great Flavors, and live Unique Experiences yourself as well! Learn more about the Greek Flavors at http://www.greatflavors.eu/index.php/en/

Inspired by Curry’s and Mina’s individual heritages and travels, International Smoke explores global approaches to fire, grilling, and smoke to create flavorful dishes that bring communities together all around the world. Food is at the heart of community, and this restaurant truly celebrates this.

Curry and Mina have created a menu that highlights an array of quality spices, products, and cooking techniques from around the globe.
