Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide lamb kebabs. Split a skewer with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Greek cuisine at Momo's Ouzaria Taverna in University City.

Nimble waiters at Momo's Ouzaria Taverna serve an authentic menu of tapas-style Greek dishes among clay-red walls and mosaics of mythological figures. Families, friends, and famished Civil War re-creators can spread starters of garlic-accented tzatziki ($7) and hummus ($7) on oven-warmed pita bread as they await their main meal. Starters give way to gyros jam-packed with tomato, crumbly feta, and sautéed morsels of shrimp ($10) or grilled vegetables ($8) as servers tack on another table to make way for mushroom-bedecked wheat-fettuccine pasta ($11). Hungry diners can also strip skewers of juicy steak kebabs ($12) over boisterous conversations or high-stakes games of pat-a-cake.

Patrons reclining on pillow-packed furniture warm themselves by a blazing fireplace in the cozy interior of Momo's. Reddish walls surround family-style banquette seating, and four-person booths enclosed by Grecian columns foster an intimate atmosphere for couples dining and distraction-free staring contests.

Momos Ouzaria Taverna

Memorialized in paint, ancient Greeks dressed in flowing togas dance beneath the arches on the walls at Momos Ouzaria Taverna. At adjacent tables and pillow-lined booths, dining companions share small plates of Greek cuisine, such as the pan-seared bay scallops in tomato-garlic basil white wine sauce. Other small plates include traditional lamb gyros with feta and tzatziki sauce and grilled shish kababs. The focal point of the main dining area is a flickering fireplace bearing a tile mosaic of a satyr peaking from behind a tree, impatiently waiting for a beautiful sunbathing woman to dive into the river so that he can steal her bowl of hummus. Nearby, bartenders serve drafts and bottles of domestic, imported, and craft brews; mix shakers filled with signature martinis; and decant glasses of ouzo, the traditional Greek liqueur known for its herbal and anise flavors.

    “Just be aware that this is a Tapas restaurant. There is plenty to eat and the selection is varied. One of our group was a vegetarian and she was really happy with her options. There are plenty of other things I would have liked to have eaten, but we ran out of time and appetite. For 3, we ordered one dip, 3 tapas, and one dessert to share. It was more than enough.”

  • “The lamb Gyro is great! with the Ezekial salad.”

  • “Share a bunch of small plates. ”
