One of the cardinal rules of a party is "Always have more than enough food for everyone," a rule superseded only by "Never mix alcohol with access to a particle accelerator." Secure sustenance for all revelers with today’s Groupon: for $150, you get $300 worth of Greek-cuisine catering from Mykonos Café and Taverna.
Named for the scenic seaside city in Greece, Mykonos offers fresh Mediterranean cuisine from restaurateur and Athens native Maria Constantine. A handcrafted catered feast lets party hosts pick and choose from a range of delectable dishes that sate 8–12 guests (approximately $19–$79/course). The mezedes pikelia ($30 for 10 guests) forms an archipelago of appetizers with savory keftedes, spanakopita, and stuffed grape leaves. Entrees include tangy chicken souvlaki marinated in fresh lemon juice, herbs, and wine ($35), and brandy-flamed shrimp saganaki in butter, garlic, and feta ($79). Heart-healthy vegetarian options such as greek salad and house-specialty tzatziki ($19 each) whisk groups across the Mediterranean without the restrictive bed times of a domineering tour guide.
