The best way to familiarize oneself with a different country's culture is to spend 10–15 years in one of its maximum-security prisons, but the second-best way is to taste its cuisine. Learn about Greece with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Greek cuisine at Mykonos Restaurant in North Arlington.
Mykonos Restaurant's full-flavored Mediterranean menu introduces tongues to hearty gyros and classic Greek dishes and allows for familiar fizz with a BYOB policy. Shareable starters, such as the homemade tzatziki served with pita bread ($5.95), marinate mouths before meals. Greek standards, such as the gyro ($6.25) or the gyro platter with greek fries ($13.95), provide pillowy pita for putting to bed memories of eating an entire tube of vitamin-infused cookie dough for breakfast. Seafood orzo lays shrimp, calamari, and octopus over a subtly spiced tomato-sauce bed ($14.95), similar to the marinara-filled mattresses that briefly proliferated after the popularity of waterbeds. Mykonos Restaurant is home to a friendly, welcoming staff and a warm, casual atmosphere, sating hunger for both friendly faces and customary Mediterranean cuisine.
