The chefs at Mythos Restaurant lovingly construct a menu of authentic dishes hailing from the Hellenic Republic. Servers ignite the saganaki cheese appetizer ($11) with a flame carried via torch directly from Mount Olympus, and slices of char-grilled beef and lamb snuggle up in the gyro platter ($16). Layers of pan-fried eggplant, potato, ground beef, and cheese stack to form a traditional baked mousaka ($17), and grilled shrimp, octopus, calamari, and lemon wedges mingle in the pikilia thalassini entree ($24). Neatly folded blue napkins moonlight as Army Men parachutes before returning to top the dining room’s white tablecloths for an echo of the Greek flag.
A casual fan of Greek food may not recognize all the dishes on Mythos Restaurant's menu. What is kolokithakia again? Why, fried zucchini served with a thick garlic-flavored puree, of course. And makaronda kima? That would be sauteed ground beef over Greek-style pasta. Naturally, the restaurant also serves familiar favorites such as char-grilled pork chops, chicken shish kabob, and lamb gyros on pita.
