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!

Arni me Anginares

Braised Lamb Shank and Organic Artichoke Hearts

Arni me Anginares

Brought back for Valentine's Day and as a promise for Spring: all-natural lamb shanks braised in extra virgin olive oil and white wine, simmered with organic, globe artichoke hearts (yes, we shuck the leaves for you!) sweet carrots, scallions and fresh dill. This is Anna's absolute favorite, a dish that she judges Greek restaurants by: if they attempt to make the dish, it's a decent diner, if it's good, she'll recommend it!

We still recommend Boutari's Naoussa with its "dark tart" berry,"Xinomavro" as the "go-to" wine for anything avgolemono: it's full, yet balanced tanins velvetize the acid of the lemon sauce.

Spanakorizo

Spinach & Rice

Spanakorizo

Simply, and wonderfully toothsome, this perennial Gardens' favorite simmers spinach with Jasmine rice and sautéed onion for a soul fill like no other. Squeeze the lemon, enjoy with the raw onion and salty feta. Mythos beer or Roditis by Tetramythos are best friends with this dish!

Gyros Heerinos

All-natural Pork Gyros

Gyros Heerinos

All-natural pork shoulder from TC 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 Deschutes on tap or a dusky red Kotsifali or a pale Kendros rose.

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!

FASOLADA

Navy Bean Soup

FASOLADA

Folk food, tender simmered navy beans with carrots, celery, potatoes, onions and parsley in a light tomato base with our own seasonings.

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!

Arni Avgolemono: Lamb & Lemon Soup w/Trachana!

Arni Avgolemono: Lamb & Lemon Soup w/Trachana!

A Gardens' innovation! Tender chunks of lamb simmered with carrots, celery and sour trahana--traditional mini dumplings made from yogurt and semolina flour--finished in a yummy avgolemono base

Saganaki Garides

Shrimp Saganaki

Saganaki Garides

Wild-caught, fire roasted jumbo shrimp with feta, fresh, organic thyme, extra virgin olive oil and our own seasonings. Dip and scoop with fire-grilled pita!
