Mythical traveler Odysseus wandered for years at sea due not 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 on Eubank Boulevard.
Named for the scenic seaside city in Greece, Mykonos offers healthy Mediterranean cuisine in an enchanted atmosphere bedecked with blue walls, mosaic tiles, 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), while sandwiches seduce tongues and grabby hands from their cloaks of pita ($8–$12). Vegetarian entrees flourish, with options such as the vegetarian mousaka, a baked eggplant dish served with zucchini, cheese, and potatoes, anointed with a béchamel sauce and side of green beans ($12). Meanwhile, a full bar satiates talkative guests wishing to sip suds, swap stories, or exchange stares.
- Super place, great for your 'neighborhood' place to go. The bartender is the best is town - he always has the best recommendations, service is perfect - remembers your favorites, too. We always have enough for take-home. – Linda D., Yelp
- We're from Chicago and know and love Greek food. This place is the real thing. Though the prices are a bit steep, the items we tried were excellent – eacosta812, TripAdvisor
