Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Today's Groupon brings bounteous Hellenic fare across the wine-dark sea and straight into your mouth, the skilled breaker of horses: for $20, you get $40 worth of Greek dinner fare and drinks at Greek Flame Taverna.
Greek Flame Taverna’s serves up a menu of rustic Greek favorites in an upscale setting. Starters such as saganaki, a flaming kefalograviera cheese finished with a homemade ouzo sauce and fresh-squeezed lemon ($8), or a large horiatiki village salad with plum tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, red onions, scallions, parsley, Dodonis feta, kalamata olives, Greek herbs, and a red wine vinaigrette ($12) appeal to an array of palates. Upscale entrees such as the arnisio fourno, a slow-roasted sliced leg of lamb served with a medley of rice and pine nuts ($17) or the omada fileto, a wild-caught grouper baked in a creamy white-wine sauce ($18) satisfy solo eaters. The Greek Flame platter allows diners to share a feast of gyro meat, grilled chicken, veggie and meat dolmades, spanakopita, hummus, tzatziki, pita, and a Greek salad ($45) with a loved one, coworker, or eating contest rival.
Greek Flame Taverna's elegant space mixes the modern and the ancient, pairing classical busts and stone façades with contemporary dark wood furniture and sleek lines. The bar offers up standardized testing for lawyers as well as a full selection of wines, Greek beer, and ouzo, while the outdoor patio lets patrons enjoy meals while savoring the sun and sharing olive pits with grateful passersby.
