Omega Ouzeri redefines traditional Greek recipes around the long-standing tradition of “meze”, small plates, of exceptional food, to be shared by everyone around the table with ouzo, tsipouro, and wine. The vision of Greek restaurateur Thomas Soukakos of El Greco, Vios Café & Marketplace on Capitol Hill, and Vios at Third Place in Ravenna, Omega promises to put Capitol Hill on the map for outstanding Greek cuisine and lively Greek fun.
One thing I know, that I know nothing. This is the source of my wisdom.
Omega is the only establishment of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. At its roots, ouzeris were the place for the workmen to gather and share small bites of simple fare with ouzo. Today, these Greek meze, have become more elaborate and the Ouzeri attracts a lively clientele of city dwellers and foodies to share modern and authentic Greek food, every day.
We’re very excited to continue sharing the Greek way of life by opening our newest Seattle restaurant on Capitol Hill. Featuring small tables for intimate conversation and communal tables for lively connections, a dynamic open-air kitchen, uniquely Greek spirited bar, a private party mezzanine, and large outdoor seating area, the REO Flats is the perfect place to showcase our passion for redefining traditional Greek recipes and our love of gathering around the table with family—and new friends.

Seattle Weekly, Nicole Sprinkle “As with so many ethnic cuisines, there’s often a dumbing-down for the Western palate. While that mind-set is being challenged voraciously in the Asian food scene, Greek food has been wide open for a refresh. This is where Omega Ouzeri comes in.”
Seattle Spectator, Caroline Ferguson “Let it be known that the name is appropriate. Tasting ouzo at Omega was pretty damn revelatory.”
