$22 for $40 Worth of Southern Greek Food, Steaks, and Drinks for Dinner
The menu of Southern Greek cuisine and traditional steak-house cuts includes appetizers such as skordalia with a roasted-garlic spread, potato, and olive oil ($6.50). Entrees include moussaka, a layered eggplant, potato, and ground-beef dish topped with béchamel sauce ($15.50), as well as traditional souvlaki dinners with three marinated pork shish kebabs, organic colored peppers, and tzatziki sauce ($19.50). The hallmark choice of the menu is the paidakia, a full rack of lamb served with two soups and two sides ($55).
Melanthios Greek Char House
As diners cross the outdoor patio of Melanthios Greek Char House and enter the dining room, they are greeted with the rich scent of greek seasoning and the aroma of mesquite charcoal. The restaurant's commitment to authenticity in its Greek entrees is such that the staff grows its own kalamata olives, but the chefs don't limit themselves to traditional dishes. They've also ventured into steak-house territory, serving mesquite-grilled cuts such as the 20-ounce porterhouse and the 8-ounce filet mignon. Regardless of a dish's national origins, the restaurant carries a bottle of wine that pairs with it well.
Around the dining room, diners settle into booths teeming with pillows and cushions, watching chefs prepare their food in an open kitchen. Exposed-brick walls frame a fireplace in the corner, and decorative balconies above the outdoor patio complete the set for couples interested in rehearsing lines from the productions of Romeo and Juliet they're putting on for their cats.
