Mediterranean cuisine is renowned for the way its rich ingredients inspire innovative food-fighting techniques. Skillfully execute the Kebab Eye Jab or the Hummus Humdinger with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Mediterranean dinner fare at Lakis Greek & Italian Restaurant.
For a quarter century, the culinary crew at Lakis, a family-owned-and-operated eatery, has crafted a dinner menu that churns with delicious flavor waves like the Mediterranean Sea. Start with creamy hummus ($4.99), or opt for a tuna-fish-stuffed tomato escorted by fellow edibles, including pineapple, fresh greens, and a hard-boiled egg ($6.99). Then, treat your stomach to veal parmigiana ($11.99), or save it from underinflation with a refilling dish of moussaka—a distant relative of lasagna that features layers of eggplant, potatoes, cheese, and ground beef crowned with béchamel sauce ($10.99). Souvlaki keeps guests satisfied with the marinated, skewered, and broiled delectability of pork tenderloin ($14.99), and greek pizza starts dry mouths watering by piling feta cheese, tomatoes, black olives, and pepperoncini peppers on homemade dough ($10.99 for a 10").
Lakis Greek & Italian Restaurant
A pastel-colored mural of the Parthenon welcomes diners to Lakis Greek & Italian Restaurant—a place where appetites get to travel to far-off lands from the comfort of a blue-vinyl booth. The menu here includes classics of Greek and Italian cuisine, as well as hybrid dishes that feature elements of both. Spanakopita spinach pies share appetizer turf with mozzarella sticks, while multi-tiered entrees include both Momma's lasagna and moussaka. The Greek pizza puts a Hellenic spin on the traditional Italian pie, and baked strombolis double as Olympic torches when placed in close proximity to appetizers of flaming saganaki.
