Misleading myths state that sea gods and seductive nymphs led him off course, but Odysseus' prolonged journey to Ithaca was because he insisted on sampling the shawarma platter of every Greek isle he passed. Send taste buds on a thrilling odyssey with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mediterranean fare at BFS Restaurant. This Groupon is valid for dinner only.
Infused with healthful ingredients and the warm rays of the Grecian sun, each savory Mediterranean dish on BFS Restaurant’s menu calls forth a fleet of flavors, while the deli selection offers delectable variations on sandwich-based classics. An eclectic array of mouth-whetting appetizers includes grape-leaf dolmas stuffed with rice and spices ($8) and an astrological assortment of ground-lamb kibbeh balls in orbit around a celestial cup of cucumber-mint yogurt sauce ($9). The Bacchanalian banquet of tender lamb and broiled beef graces the shawarma platter entree ($18), while the shish kebabs skewer stacks of succulent chicken or beef with vegetables on the swords of pint-sized warriors ($20).
A vast selection of signature deli sandwiches inspired by in-state locales keeps BFS Restaurant in touch with its New York roots. Layered with grilled chicken, tomato, and melted muenster cheese on a kaiser roll, the Staten Island sandwich is well worth a wet ferry trip ($9). With an organic loose-leaf tea bar ($3 for all teas) and orders of flaky baklava ($2/small, $3/large), BFS Restaurant keeps customers idling in the dining rooms long after the feast has been expunged by the abyss of your hungry belly.
