Many Greek myths follow the same plot arc—character does something stupid, character dies in lesson-teaching manner. The Grecian myth surrounding today's deal is the exact opposite—character does something smart, character builds successful pack of lesson-teaching restaurants. Sample mythological goodness by biting into today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Greek fare and drinks at Acropolis.
Chef Pauly Souffle and his team at Acropolis create a menu packed with traditional mezes, souvlaki, flatbreads, and a sampling of American classics and breakfast fare. Diners top pitas with roasted-red-pepper hummus ($8) or saganaki flaming cheese ($8), which double as beacons for communication with neighboring tables. Theziti of the signature mediterranean pasta ($12) rests beneath layers of kalamata olives, artichokes, peppers, and feta. Meatier selections include succulent pork chops ($13) or the restaurant’s specialty roasted lamb shank ($15). The eatery's exposed-brick walls and sleek hardwood floors illuminated by the soft glow of tabletop candles ensconce guests as they indulge. Acropolis is applying for a music license and plans to expand to a second story with additional bar and outdoor patio.
