For our 21st Valentines' Day we brought back the pan-seared, duck breast, braised in white wine, pomegranate & rosemary and the fresh Atlantic Salmon and Alaskan Halibut fire roasted with green & black olives, capers & caper tips from the island of Santorini! Served on a bed of cumin-scented, sautéed rice, we paired the duck with Amethystos Rose and the fish combo with Kleoni rose.
A simple solution to the increasing incidence of gluten-free diets that our customers are requesting!

We couldn't resist sharing this: Kleftiko ready to be tied up in parchment. The all-natural lamb shoulder has been seared, semi-braised in wine, and here awaits its en papillote finish...find the accompanying vegetables: eggplant, okra, fava bean, sun choke, red bell, feta, thyme, marjoram, rosemary...it's all there. And with the magic of cooking, the sum total exceeds its parts!
Travel Greece the way it should be traveled: the best food and wine, Antiquity sites and seashore, fortresses and monasteries, villages and sparkling cities.

You never know who's going to stop by at the Gardens! Today, a nearly full house was treated to Santa and Christmas Carol's lunch stop. The lively chatter dropped to a whisper when Santa was spied, and true to his generous nature, stopped at each table and greeted our customers. Santa seemed to be on a running theme from suit to menu: red, red, red...beets, roasted red bell peppers topped off with a Baklava sundae.
