BAR EOLO: SICILIAN KITCHEN & WINES
Eolo, Italian for Aeolus, is ruler of the wind. According to mythology, Eolo lived on a small, volcanic island off the coast of Sicily and was a favorite among the Greek gods. He gave Odysseus a wine bag filled with wind to speed his historic voyage home. Nearly there, Odysseus’s curious crew opened the bag, the winds escaped and their ship was pulled back to the Sicilian archipelago.
From the beginning, Sicily has been a cultural crossroads, inhabited by the Greeks, Phoenicians, Arabs, Romans, Jews, Normans, Bourbons and beyond. Sicily has kept several elements of these cultures and incorporated them into its own.
At Eolo, food is thought to be a source of great pleasure as well as an insight into the culture and history of Sicily.
