Veranda Greek Taverna
Begin a flavorfully peripatetic meal by meandering like Odysseus through Veranda's $5 tapas menu and slaying calamari, capsizing xtapodi (citrusy char-grilled octopus), spearing Aegean skewers (scallops, shrimp, salmon, zucchini, and plum tomatoes), mispronouncing kolokithokeftedes (two golden zucchini cakes with feta crème), and heroically defending your tongue against the onslaught of potato croketes (croquettes with melted-cheese centers). A gyro platter ($14.95) or lamb souvlaki ($13.95) keeps traditions hot. Or rewrite classics with a beefy three-skewer plate ($13.95) and a mixed-grill order (lamb and pork chops with a chicken kebab, $23.95). No trip to the Aegean would be complete without an order of baklava ($5), so take the opportunity to bestow your tongue with its Hellenic richness. This Groupon is also valid for Veranda's bountiful lunch buffet.
