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!

*Petimezi is a traditional sweetener made from the reduction of MUST, the pressed juice of grapes. Often referred to as Grape Molasses

KOTSI ARNI me MANITARIA

Lamb Shanks and Portobellos on Spaghettini

KOTSI ARNI 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!

Veggie Mousakas

The Gardens' Classic & First Premier

Veggie Mousakas

Our vegetarian version of possibly the most famous after gyro Greek dish--layers of roasted eggplant (3) covered with a heavier garlic and wine red sauce (2 layers) sprinkled with chunks of feta cheese (pasteurized) and topped with a creamy béchamel sauce--baked to a golden brown.

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

Kolokitho-Trahana: Winter Solace Squash Soup!

Kolokitho-Trahana: Winter Solace Squash Soup!

We call it Setting Sun Squash soup--the hit from the third Symposia. A Series! Pureed organic banana squash from the Southeast Food Network thickened with sour trahana imported from Greece. What is trahana? Like cous cous, it's a traditional method of storing winter wheat: a mash made from the flour mixed with yogurt, soured naturally, and forced through a screen and allowed to dry in the sun! Throughout the wet and cloudy winter months it is reconstituted into a porridge-like meal eaten with gusto. Here it adds flavor and texture to the silky blend of roasted squash. You'll have more vitamin A than you'll need in a day! Served with a dollop of cow & goat blended Greek yogurt.

HEERINOS me TRACHANA AVGOLEMONO

Pork & Trachana Lemon Soup

HEERINOS me TRACHANA AVGOLEMONO
