GYRO GALOPOULO

Slow Roasted Turkey on Vertical Rotisserie!

GYRO GALOPOULO

Turkey Gyros? There's a Gyradiko, especially popular among the students in Thessaloniki, which has expanded its Gyros specialty into an over-the-top selection of meats roasted on the vertical rotisserie. In additional to the standard, pressed Gyros, they offer Pork, Chicken, Turkey and even Pheasant.
This month's all-natural gyros the Gardens features a blend of New with Old World in the best sense--organic Schultz turkey breasts and thighs dry-rubbed, layered with onion and stacked, slow-roasted, sliced to order and piled on an open grilled pita with a generous handful of Greek fries and a side Tzatziki. We're drinking Surly's Bender with this one!

Heerinos me Horta

Pork Shoulder with Greens

Heerinos me Horta

For this lovely and light summer dish provided entirely by our friends from the Southeast Food Network, we take fresh shoulder pork, rub it with seasonings, sear and then braise it in freshly squeezed lemon juice, white wine and 100% extra virgin olive oil together with freshly picked Nettle tips and Ramps and Heirloom potatoes.

I'll lick the pan! It's that good!"says Marcie, a patron of the Gardens since its opening. Eleni says, "It's my new life favorite!" FINALLY we got Zoran to try it (he avoids "greens") It's my favorite! I almost fell over. "It's GOOOOOD!", again, and again.

Served with a chunk of Wisconsin cow's milk Feta cheese, we have paired it with the straight-talker rose' Kleoni which may not be our favorite patio tippler, but has become our best food backer!.

Arni Kokkinisto me Manitaria

Lamb Shanks and Portobellos on Spaghettini

Arni Kokkinisto me Manitaria

The Gardens teases with a winter favorite: lamb shanks braised in a rich brown sauce thickened by Portabella mushrooms on top of organic whole wheat spaghettini. The sprinkling of Kefalotyri cheese finishes this yummy dish. You won't even notice the tattered heaps of snow after you have polished this off. Have it with a glass of red Oenodea and hunker down!

MAKARONIA THALASINA

Seafood Pasta

MAKARONIA THALASINA

Oh, YUM! WILD-CAUGHT Jumbo scallops, shrimp and clams sautéed with onions, garlic and thyme served on linguine. Squeeze the lemon. Make it rain gold!

MANITIS tis CRITIS

Mushroom Saganaki Fire Finished, Cretan style

MANITIS tis CRITIS

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: Minnesota Hen of the Woods oven braised with EVO oil, white wine, lemon, fresh thyme and fire finished w/feta.
Try them with the Greek aperitif of choice, Kourtaki retsina or a minerally white, Assyrtiko, or Roditis. Wow!

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!

Manitaria Trachana

Mushroom Trachana

Manitaria Trachana

A TC debut soup--traditional Trachana, simmered in in-house vegetable stock with white wine, a slug of brandy and woodland mushrooms. Dolloped with Greek yogurt. Winter hunker food. Wait, what is trachana? Cracked wheat mixed to a paste with yogurt, grated to mini pasta and sun-dried.

Kota Xilopites Avgolemono

A variation of our classic, Chicken Angelhair--plump squares of pasta in house-simmered chicken stock thickened with the traditional egg-lemon sauce
