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!

Today's Shank: KOTSI ARNI me ANGINARES

We judge Greek restaurants by their preparation of this singular dish! All-natural lamb foreshank seared then braised in white wine and EVO Greek olive oil....for hours. Finally simmered with fresh organic artichoke hearts, carrots and scallions then finished with the traditional Avgolemono sauce and fresh dill

We enjoy ours with a light dry Xinomavro wine from Chrisohoou

Briam

An Oven-Braise of Garden Vegetables

Briam

No ones kidding anyone: these veggies aren't local, they've been trucked in by our twenty year conventional grocer supplier, Twin Cities Produce, who supply Lunds/Byerly's and Cub Food Stores. But independent and local, our friend Tony R and his family have been attending our children's graduations and events for nearly as long. In from California, Texas and Florida, then, tender first growth zucchini, eggplant, cold storage heirloom potatoes from Southeast Food Network, and red bells roasted with our own dried, yes, local AND organic herbs, mint, basil, and chili peppers for a delectably rich and satisfying meal.

Served with a chunk of Wisconsin cow's milk feta cheese.

Vegan option, please ask for a garnish of Calamata olives.

We have paired this with Furious, now on tap, Tetramythos Roditis (White) or Lafkiotis Nemea (red) You choose.

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.
