Mykonos Restaurant For Sale
Large Greek restaurant on huge lot near 85th and Capitol seats 215 people.
After more than 30 years in business on Milwaukee’s northwest side, the Greek breakfast-and-lunch establishment Mykonos is seeking new owners.
The 5,000-square-foot restaurant, 8501 W. Capitol Dr., is located in a free-standing building adjacent to a 75-space parking lot. The property that surrounds the restaurant is 31,052 square feet and would be included in the sale. It is listed for $799,000.
Ilias Demolas bought the restaurant and property in 1999 from Kit Partnership. Throughout the past two decades, he leased the business to multiple owners, but most recently a liquor license for the business lists Demolas as the sole owner with Ted Eliades as the agent.
Demolas previously owned the now-closed Mykonos Gyro & Cafe at 1008-1014 N. Van Buren St., but sold the restaurant to his sister in 2003 due to his plans to move out of state. He now resides in Las Vegas, Nev., according to the liquor license. Eliades lives in Milwaukee.
The restaurant on Capitol Dr. was established in 1991 and contains 215 seats. It is recently renovated, according to the listing. It is marketed as having new fixtures and mechanical systems —the latter being especially notable as it was replaced in 2019 after a thief jumped the back fence and destroyed the restaurant’s two air conditioning units, stealing the copper refrigerant lines and causing $40,000 in damages.
