Catering an event is a surefire way to rack up an impressive number of guests, much like holding your party in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. Increase attendance on any day of the year with today’s Groupon from Athenian Greek Taverna, located in Commack. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Greek fare.
- For $49, you get $100 worth of catering services.<p>
The family-owned Athenian Greek Taverna showers droves of worldly wanderers with authentic Greek fare, all outlined on a massive yet meticulous menu. In-house diners can sharpen their fangs on crispy fried calamari ($9) or the shells of mussels ($9) before tackling the spiced protein and melty kasseri cheese of gyro melts ($10), served with a choice of yogurt sauce, honey mustard, or onion sauce. The catering menu allows for Athenian’s large portions—such as a tray of gyro meat ($80), a half tray of barbecue pork ($50), or a dozen stuffed peppers ($55)—to grace graduation parties or retirement ragers. Sternos, racks, serving spoons, tins, and pita bread are included in catering orders, and delivery and setup are free. Call at least five days in advance of an event to order catering.
Athenian Greek Taverna
Huge wooden wine barrels are stowed overhead in the dining room at Athenian Greek Taverna. They lend a rustic authenticity to the interiors of the restaurant, which serves feasts of traditional moussaka, kabobs, gyros, and seafood. Before the main course, you can sample plates of creamy hummus and spicy feta dips; stave off the urge to steal food from other tables by adding a plate of flaming saganaki. For dinner, enjoy peasant-style plates of whole grilled seabass or trout. When you dine in, main dishes such as pita sandwiches, falafel plates, and marinated chicken come accompanied with wooden bowls of colorful salads.
The restaurant also offers catering packages for holiday feastings, parties, and corporate events, with a specialized focus on serving the pharmaceutical industry.
