Additional Entrees

CALAMARI YEMISTA

Stuffed Wild-Caught Squid

CALAMARI YEMISTA

Calamari, a wild-caught more tender relative of squid stuffed with rice, onions, chopped calamari tentacles, 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.

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

GYRO HEERINO

IN-HOUSE ORGANIC PORK GYRO

GYRO HEERINO

From Tender Care Farms (TC FARMS) pork shoulder, jowl and loin sliced, dry rubbed, stacked and vertically broiled. They should have it this good in GREECE! Served on an open pita w/Tzatziki and a pile of fries! Thank you, Jack!

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!

KOUNOUPIDI YACHNI

Braised organic cauliflower with onions & diced tomatoes

KOUNOUPIDI YACHNI

Even MEAT eaters love our Kounoupidi Yachni--a traditional braised dish made with lots of onions, fresh tomatoes and vegetables--here, organic cauliflower and seasonings.
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
