The chefs at the St. Petersburg Times–lauded Mythos Greek Taverna plate authentic Mediterranean cuisine such as garlicky kebabs and marinated vegetables in a lively atmosphere filled with weekend entertainment. Dinner guests can warm their brass knuckles around the flaming saganaki, a pan-seared salty cheese coated in sweet rum and set alight at the table ($6.99). An appetizer of dolmades, or stuffed grape leaves ($6.99), gives way to tender cubes of chicken kebabs ($14.99) or a treasure trove of the moussaka’s steaming layers of eggplant, ground beef, and béchamel sauce ($11.99). The lunch menu includes the santorini salmon wrap, a summit of grilled salmon, caramelized onions, and roasted red peppers bursting at the seams of a soft bread wrapping ($9.99) and a roasted vegetable salad of marinated eggplant and zucchini ($8.99).
Mythos Greek Taverna pairs its succulent bites with the sinuous rhythms of belly dancers on Friday and Saturday nights. A calendar of events includes head-bopping club beats after-hours.
Mythos Greek Taverna
No matter the night, there’s fire at Mythos Greek Taverna, whether it’s emanating from the belly dancers twirling flames or the servers’ lit platters of saganaki. In addition to the flaming kefalograviera cheese, diners also dig into classic Greek cuisine such as gyro platters, chicken kebabs, and dolmades—tender grapevine leaves stuffed with ground beef and rice. Staff members pour drinks behind the full bar, and patrons are welcome to meander to outdoor tables overlooking the water.
