Greek fare, like the Greek alphabet, often graces the T-shirts of college students. Pledge to keep meals in mouths with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a three-course dinner for two at Little Greek Restaurant in Richardson (up to a $29.26 value). The three courses include:
- A shared appetizer of hummus and pita (a $3.89 value)
- Any two dinner entrees, excluding the sampler platter (up to a $21.98 value)
- A shared dessert of baklava with ice cream (a $3.39 value)
Little Greek Restaurant quells roving appetites with a menu of Mediterranean inspired meals. Divvy up slices of warm pita to plunge in hummus or bore a hole in the bread and use it as a planchette to scan the menu's entree selections. A plate of dolmades makes easy prey for a tablemate's wandering fork, dangling six tender stuffed grape leaves aside a gathering of greek potatoes. Jump into a meaty melee with three skewers of tender chicken or lamb souvlaki, or a traditional gyro platter. Both are served with rice, a greek salad, and pita. For dessert, forks plow through baklava's endless layers of sweet phyllo pastry and chopped nuts, and a scoop of cinnamon ice cream melts on tongues like Salvador Dali's bedside clock radio.
The casual atmosphere is bolstered by the thrill of watching chefs prepare meals in the open kitchen. Settle into a booth and salivate as mealmakers carve gyro meat, toss greek salads, and use the Pythagorean theorem to slice perfectly triangular pitas.
