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 $25, you get $50 worth of Greek and Mediterranean fare at Mr. Gyros, located in Metairie. Mr. Gyros tempts people-palates with a menu full of pristine pitas and first-class falafels, providing the New Orleans area with an authentic portal to Hellenic victuals. Warm up your taste buds for a Richard Simmons–less workout by starting with the tzatziki-dipped calamari ($7.95) before turning your attention toward a greek salad ($8.95). Entrees such as the gyro plate ($11.95) provide the kind of protein-derived confidence needed to intimidate rock-paper-scissor rivals, while a baklava sundae ($4.95) provides a first-place finish for any meal.
