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!

Gyros Heerinos

All-natural Pork Gyros

Gyros Heerinos

All-natural pork shoulder from Fox Farms, sliced and dry-rubbed with our spices, stacked on a vertical rotisserie and slow cooked. Piled on an open faced pita and accompanied with a pile of Greek fries and Tzatziki, there is not much else to decide...except for a Certified Evil on tap or a dusky red Kleoni.

Today's Seasonal Starters, Soups & Desserts

Last Call of the Season!

Fresh Mission Figs Poached in Greek Port Wine!

Last Call of the Season!

Fresh figs are coming to the end of their season! We poach them lightly with Wisconsin craisins in Mavrodaphne, (a Greek port-like wine) flavored with organic citrus zest, cinnamon and bay leaves. Light and refreshing: the perfect not-too-sweet finish to the heaviest meal. Always a vegan choice. Always NO fat. Always gluten free! Served with a sprinkling of toasted almonds.

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, hen-of-the-woods or Maitaki, 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 dry, minerally white, Lafkioti Moschofilero or Boutari Kouros, white. Wow!

Petimezi Marinated Lamb Ribblets

Tender Juicies on the Bone!

Petimezi Marinated Lamb Ribblets

Unbelievable flavor from Petimezi, a traditional "poor" man's sweetner made from grape molasses, sherry vinegar, EVO oil and spices. Grilled to medium rare per order and served minted Greek yogurt dipping sauce.
