Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Today's Groupon brings bounteous Hellenic fare across the wine-dark sea and straight into your mouth, the skilled breaker of horses: For $10, you get $20 worth of Greek fare and drinks at Acropolis on Elmwood Avenue.
With a staff headlined by master chef Pauly Souffle, Acropolis boasts a menu bursting at the seams with Greek-inspired grub and international dishes. A Trojan-bowl filled to the brim with daily soup ($3.50) infiltrates unsuspecting tasters with astounding homemade flavor, while the hummus roasted red pepper ($8) lunch appetizer is a sweet siren song of pureed chickpeas, garlic, lemon oil, and roasted pepper served with pita bread. In celebration of ancient Greece's luminous east coast, diners can feast on a New York strip steak ($14), featuring a 12 oz. slice of meat and choice of sides. Like giving a grizzly bear the car keys during a family camping trip, the gyro dinner ($12) extends an olive branch to bellowing stomachs in the form of Greek salad, potato or rice pilaf, tzatziki, and pita bread. Kids can strengthen their bones as the Spartan youth before them by battling a grilled cheese sandwich backed by an army of fries ($3.95)––then wash down their foes with a naval fleet comprised of chocolate milk ($2.25) and Oreo milkshakes ($3.50). Doused in warm lighting, this attractive eatery is garnished with burnished wood floors and exposed brick walls for an extra-pleasant dining experience. A recently added bar means potent potables can complement the already tasty meals, or simply serve as a prop to lean against with coolly feigned disinterest.
- I have always gone to this restaurant for a late breakfast/early lunch on the weekend, but I noticed that they are now open for dinner. I had the chicken souvlacki salad, and as always, was delicious. – Oscar613, Urbanspoon
