About Us

Our Story

Where It All Began

Creating a Greek cuisine restaurant has been our dream for many, many years. Combined with our passion of our culture, history, and food of our country, we want to share this with others. With more than twenty years of restaurant experience and hospitality we made our dream a reality by establishing Ela Mesa Taste of Greece, located in the heart of Gaithersburg Maryland in 2022.

Inspired by the Greek philosophy of “Philoxenia”, we aim to extend the warmth of our home to the hearts of our guests. Come discover our heritage of great food and uncomparable hospitality.

The best moments and most memorable experiences happen when joined at a table, raising glasses and toasting to health and prosperity. To revive the richness of Greek cuisine which is centered on traditional ingredients with contemporary dishes, we have incorporated a variety of recipes from Greece.

We are dedicated to providing an unforgettable experience for our guests, where memories are made and community members gather for a taste of true Greek cuisine and unmatched hospitality. Great food, fine dining, and friends. Come on in and enjoy the taste of Greece.
