Grub Med elevates Greek dining with upscale fare and sumptuous decor of exposed brick and crossbeams, dark wood, and scarlet tablecloths. The lunch and dinner menus start with traditional Greek appetizers such as dolmades, vine leaves stuffed with rice and served with tzatziki for dipping ($10.95 for dinner, $8 for lunch) and striphia, oysters and spinach baked in feta ($13.95 for dinner, $12 for lunch) and served skewered on Poseidon's trident. Entrees include kleftico, the house specialty of slow-roasted lamb ($23.95 for dinner, $13 for lunch), and moschari stifado, beef ragout baked with vegetables in a ceramic pot ($22.95 for dinner, $12 for lunch). Either dish can be made into a split order for $5 to share with another human or lifelike wax sculpture. Briam coaxes fresh vegetables and seasoned tomato sauce to embrace under passionate oven heat, then seals the union with a topping of feta ($19.95 for dinner, $10 for lunch). Groups of two or more with hearty dinner appetites can opt for the traditional meze plate of hummus, melitzano, pita, greek salad, spanakopita, dolmades, keftedes, tzatziki, roast lamb, and chicken ($30/person), also available in a vegetarian version ($27/person) using only the finest free-range plants.
Grub Med Greek Ristorante
Nestled within a serene residential neighbourhood, Grub Med Greek Ristorante fills its dimly lit dining room with the aromas of rich sauces, succulent seafood, and roast lamb. Unlike a raucous gathering in a taverna or a date in a home-stereo store, the atmosphere evokes a romantic tranquility, where walls bear a regal air with deep purple hues, stone masonry, and framed images of ancient Greek artwork. Guests sidle up to intimate, scarlet-clad tables, sharing a traditional starter of hummus and tzatziki with morsels of toasty pita, or dining on forkfuls of marinated souvlaki and baked salmon.
