Ancient Greece has had an incomparable influence on the development of Western civilization, from inventing classical nudity to popularizing the battle-skirt. Pay homage to Greek innovation with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Greek fare and drinks at Athens Restaurant, located in the West End.
Gathering locally sourced ingredients, Athens Restaurant builds its menu upon a foundation of authentic Greek recipes and specialty house dishes. Commence your trek through Mediterranean bliss with saganaki, a breaded graviera cheese flambéed with Metaxa brandy ($9.99). The spinach and feta pierogies make appetizing filler for empty throat pouches or toasty lining for threadbare greatcoats. Strata of noodles, ground beef, and lamb undulating in an authentic pastitsio ($13.99) complement a tablemate's plate of roasted mushroom ravioli ($13.99). Athens Restaurant greets the sun with standard Western egg breakfasts ($5.99) and unique Greek morning feasts such as homemade salt fish cakes, two eggs, and skorthalia ($8.99). Not to be ignored, the baklava ($5.99), stuffed with spiced almonds, walnuts, syrup, and honey, evokes layer upon layer of phyllo pathos when left untouched.
