Shared or ordered as a half portion, Kounoupidi is naturally sweet and toothsome and accompanies Spinach Feta Boughatsa or a skewer of meat handily

Enjoy with a Surly Bender, brown ale, Roditis, Lyrarakis Daphnes or Lafkioti Agiorgitiko

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!

Today's Seasonal Starters, Soups & Desserts

Faikes:

Lentil Soup

Faikes:

The classic soup of Greece eaten so often during periods of fasting

it has given us the word "Lent" and "lenten"! This is the smaller, brown pulse imported from Greece and made simply with lots of onions, garlic, herbs and spices: no veggies--potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, celery. If you want to eat it the way Anna does, order an "extra" of Skordalia and daub your soup with it. Yum! Both are vegan.

Gyros Arni Appetizer

Gyros Arni Appetizer

Don't want to commit your week long anticipated Gardens' entree for a All-Natural Lamb Gyro? Then try the Lamb Gyro appetizer....succulent shavings of spice rubbed, vertically skewered lamb served with quarters of fire grilled pita and Tzatziki. Makes a great light meal as well!
