KOVO Modern Mediterranean, located on the northeast corner of Tatum and Shea boulevards in Phoenix, is now open. KOVO features regional dishes from across Cyprus, Italy, Greece, France, Spain and the Middle East.
In Greek, KOVO means “to carve.” As such, rotisserie meats are displayed in the open kitchen and served in many entrees. A wood-fired oven produces pizzas and other specialties.
The 4,000-square-foot space seats more than 140 and includes a large outdoor patio and wrap-around indoor/outdoor bar. The design features Moroccan-style tiles, rich blue ocean-inspired accents and artistic fixtures throughout.
