Saganaki is not only a delicious, cheesy snack, but also serves as excellent trap bait when trying to snare the elusive, but pesky, pyromouse. Extinguish the flames of hunger with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Greek cuisine at Estiatorio Rafina in Murray Hill.
Estiatorio Rafina teleports diners to the Hellenic Republic with a menu of authentically prepared Greek appetizers and entrees. This gastronomic odyssey sets sail with hot and cold starters, such as spanakopita, homemade spinach pie ($8), or octapodaki, tender grilled octopus that is as much as a delight to eat as it is to say ($14). A school of seafood entrees comes charcoal-grilled with olive oil and lemon-herb sauce, and the garides Rafina contains chariot-racing shrimp cheered on by tomatoes and feta within a baked-casserole stadium ($25). A chorus of Greek seasonings serenades the paidakia, a platter of coal-kissed baby lamb chops served with a cozy bed of rice or potato teddy bear ($29). Teak floors and stucco walls adorn Estiatorio Rafina, along with a fountain and seasonal greenery surrounding their outdoor seating area.
