Michael Morton and Jenna Morton debuted Greek Sneak in September 2018 in the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Maximize pleasure—a fundamental moral obligation, according to ancient philosophers. Greek Sneek makes it easy with a Greek and Mediterranean Menu of fresh, classic, great food, complemented by perfectly-aged wine and spirits.
Greek Sneek is tucked away down a hallway reminiscent of the maze of narrow streets in the old country. The entryway passes through the wine room before opening into a white brick barrel-vaulted dining room.
The main dining room, which seats up to fifty guests, features an open kitchen with a wood-burning oven for baking fresh bread and Saganaki. The dining room is flanked by a full bar which accommodates ten guests for dining or toasting “Opa!” with a glass of Ouzo. A private dining room on the opposite end comfortably seats parties of up to forty people. The restaurant is available for special events, corporate parties, and really any kind of party.
Greek Sneek believes that eating, drinking, and toasting loudly is the best way to fulfill your moral obligation to maximize pleasure.
Chef William Demarco
Long Island, New York native Chef William “Billy” Demarco was introduced to the restaurant industry at an early age through his family-owned business, a popular neighborhood pizzeria. DeMarco loved the fast-paced kitchen environment and the sense of warmth encouraged through spending time with family, eating good food and drinking wine. He brings this sentiment into his position as the executive chef of La Cave Wine and Food Hideaway at Wynn Las Vegas.
DeMarco has been with the celebrated Morton Group restaurant since before La Cave’s opening. His day-to-day responsibilities include maintaining the highest of standards in servicing guests, overseeing the restaurant’s chefs and food preparation, and developing La Cave’s small-plate cuisine. He uses his culinary expertise to craft new dishes with fresh ingredients for the dinner menu, gluten-free fare and Sunday American Brunch. DeMarco serves small plates, oven-fired flatbreads and charcuterie that draw on an array of international influences and reflect his fun, straight-forward approach to cooking.
“I love to serve food that people love,” said DeMarco. “So I take what people love and create dishes that blend comfort and class.”
DeMarco began his culinary career working for Sam DeMarco, with whom the La Cave Wine and Food Hideaway executive chef coincidentally shares the same surname. During these early years, he would eventually become executive chef of Sam DeMarco’s three restaurants: First, Merge and District. Four years later, DeMarco accepted the opportunity to work as the executive sous chef at The River Café, a landmark Brooklyn restaurant. While spending two years there, he was inspired by Executive Chef Brad Steelman’s knack for applying inventive touches to straight-forward American cuisine. In 2005, he relocated to Las Vegas, where he worked at the Manhattan-based restaurant, Aureole, inside Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino. In 2006, DeMarco joined Wynn Las Vegas as executive chef of The Buffet, where he oversaw 16 cooking stations to offer guests a breadth of international selections at breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition to his leadership at La Cave, DeMarco serves as Corporate Executive Chef for Morton Group and oversees the food programs at La Comida and CRUSH eat, drink, love expected to open at MGM Grand this December.
DeMarco graduated from the Florida Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach. In his spare time, DeMarco enjoys watching sports, discovering culinary trends in different cultures and spending time with his daughter.
