Hellenika’s Simon Gloftis Is Opening A New Mediterranean Eatery

Hello Sunshine!

By Summer Jane | 7th July 2021

Sit down because we have big news (spoiler: you’re going to eat your heart out!)

The culinary genius behind the iconic Hellenika and SK Steak & Oyster, Simon Gloftis, has announced a new venture in the works.

*drum roll please*

Say hello to Sunshine!

Coming to the gorgeous James Street will be the passion project that has been five years in the making. Pouring every essence of himself into the planning of the venue, Simon has secured the perfect team and perfect location.

Coming along the journey with Simon will be Theo Kampolis and Kelvin Andrews who will provide another layer of expertise in fine dining. Together, they’ll be creating the effortless and easy neighbourhood eatery we’ve been craving, while keeping the touch of quality and craftsmanship that you’d expect.

Situated directly across the road from The Calile Hotel where Simon’s current venues are located, Sunshine will offer a Mediterranean and all-vegetarian menu. Your taste buds will be taken on an explosive and flavoursome journey that’s good for your mind, body and soul. We’re talking beautiful trays of stuffed tomatoes and delicious salads served with utilitarian efficiency – all you have to do is point and they’ll fill your place.

As for sips, there’ll be beautifully crafted beverages such as juice, fresh lemonade iced tea, cocktails, and organic biodynamic wines to complete the indulgent dining experience. With both dine-in and takeaway on offer, Sunshine will offer service like no other.

Sunshine is only months away from opening its doors, so keep a look out on its launch date, as its already making noise with Gloftis’ loyal following.

We don’t doubt it will hold the same significance to the Brissy food scene as when Simon opened Hellenika 11 years ago!
