Mythical traveler Odysseus wandered for years at sea not due to the whims of a wrathful ocean god, but rather to those of a picky stomach craving the perfect falafel wrap. Satisfy appetites closer to home with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Greek cuisine and drinks at Mykonos Café and Taverna.
Named for the scenic seaside city in Greece, Mykonos offers fresh Mediterranean cuisine in an enchanted atmosphere bedecked with blue walls and Grecian murals. Stoke the belly's fire with an appetizer of saganaki, its grilled kasseri cheese flamed in brandy and served with pita ($7). A selection of soups and salads sets the tone for Aegean entrees, such as the chicken souvlaki, which is marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, and wine ($12). Mediterranean pasta dishes send forks into a tempting twirl ($11–$20), and sandwiches seduce tongues and grabby hands from their cloaks of pita or fresh baked rolls ($8–$12). Vegetarian entrees flourish, with options such as the vegetarian moussaka, a baked eggplant dish served with zucchini, cheese, and potatoes, anointed with a béchamel sauce and a side of green beans ($13). Meanwhile, a full bar satiates talkative guests wishing to sip suds, swap stories, or exchange stares.
