Additional Entrees

Calamari Yemista

Stuffed Squid

Calamari Yemista

Wild caught squid stuffed with rice, onions, chopped squid, herbs and seasonings on braised onions in light tomato and wine sauce. Looks like cannelloni tubes, but the flavorings of organic orange peel, cayenne, thyme, and mint make a rich, complex dish--one of the most requested. An easy pairing with our Boutari House red $32/bottle or, if you want the flavors to pop, ask for the Lafkiotis, Agiorgitiko, $40/bottle: smokey, deep, complex with a bright cassis finish that zaps the orange and cayenne in this dish.

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!

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!.

Our Most Anticipated Item: All-Natural, ALL Lamb Gyros!

Our Most Anticipated Item: All-Natural, ALL Lamb Gyros!

Our most requested food offering has now arrived: all-natural leg of lamb, dry rubbed with spice, skewered and slow-roasted on the vertical rotisserie. Shaved per order and served on an open pita with a pile of Greek Fries and Tzatziki. Enough to share. Pair it with Crispin's The Saint or Mythos Red.

Arni Fricassee

Braised Lamb Shank w/Greens in Avgolemono

Arni Fricassee

One of our original specials, our beloved Tzia taught Anna this special dish. Lamb braised in white wine and EVO oil, simmered with greens--often romaine, but as easily, escarole, arugula, mustard--this dish is a favorite Christmas Eve repast. Anna has taught this soul heartening entree in her cooking classes more than any other. Simple and simply delicious. Order a glass of Oenodea red, or Lafkiotis Agirogitiko, and enjoy how tanins and citrus tango on your palate!
