Additional Entrees

Paidakia Arni sti Sxara

Fire grilled Lamb Ribblets

Paidakia Arni sti Sxara

Marinated in Petimezi, garlic, mint and sherry vinegar, these tender shined lamb chops are flame grilled to order, drizzled with Petimezi sauce, sprinkled with fresh herbs and served on cumin scented jasmine rice with a side of paprika and mint yogurt. We paired ours with Furious (dark ale), Roditis, Tetramythos (white) Rodamo, Nemea and Oenodea for a perfect light and tasty meal!

Makaronia Thalasina

Jumbo Scallops, Shrimp & Clams on Linguine

Makaronia Thalasina

A perennial favorite "additional entree" at the Gardens,

wild-caught jumbo scallops, shrimp and clams lightly sauteed with onion and garlic in olive oil over linguine. Where's the beach?

Today's Shank: KOTSI ARNI me ANGINARES

lamb shank avgolemono with organic artichokes

Today's Shank: KOTSI ARNI me ANGINARES

We judge Greek restaurants by their preparation of this singular dish! All-natural lamb foreshank seared then braised in white wine and EVO Greek olive oil....for hours. Finally simmered with fresh organic artichoke hearts, carrots and scallions then finished with the traditional Avgolemono sauce and fresh dill

We enjoy ours with a light dry Xinomavro wine from Chrisohoou

Today's Seasonal Starters, Soups & Desserts

Manites tis Kritis

Mushroom Medley Fire Finished, Cretan style

Manites tis Kritis

A man called the Gardens the other day and asked with incredulity, "what was that mushroom app that I ate last night? I think that was the BEST thing I've eaten in my LIFE." We're just passing it along--some amazing flavors, Oyster, Crimini and Beach Tree mushrooms are oven roasted and finished under the fire grill with EVO, white wine, lemon, fresh thyme and feta.
Try them with the Greek aperitif of choice, Kourtaki retsina or a minerally white, Assyrtiko, or Roditis. Wow!

Psaroavgolemono

Fish Avgolemono

Psaroavgolemono

Wild caught cod poached in the traditional lemon base with rice and thyme and a hint of heat!

Fava

Golden Split Pea

Fava

The soup that we didn't know was Greek until we found it in the definitive cookbook! Yummy and as simple as can be.

One Saturday as newly opened, we arrived early in the morning only to realize that the "house-simmered stock" had not been prepared. Devastated we wracked our heads and came up with "Fava Style Soup". Only because Fava is prepared with golden split peas and we grew up eating Split Pea Soup we made the jump. Two months later we found it in our favorite cookbook: the chef grew up eating it in Greece. We still get more calls for the availability of that soup than any other. It's Anna's favorite winter breakfast.

Ouzo Flo

Ouzo flavored soda & Anna's Organic Ouzo Ice Cream

Ouzo Flo

A Twin Cities debut--maybe a world premier, the Gardens' Ouzo Flo! Share a bottle with two scoops or treat yourself to the light, not-too-sweet flavor of black licorice tempered by cream that quenches any thirst!
