The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious feta and hummus growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mediterranean-inspired fare and drinks at Niko’s.
Owner and Executive Chef Nick Kyriakidis fill menus and bellies with a Southern-minded fusion of Greek, Italian, and other Mediterranean fare. The dinner menu explodes with more flavor than dynamite wrapped in bacon, showcasing a farm-lamb burger nestled against arugula, tzatziki, and shallots ($10), and an eggplant napoleon that achieves a zesty regime with seasoned veggies and two cheeses ($13). Lunch and meze spotlight culinary configurations such as wood-grilled local mushroom pizza ($12) and spinach pies with feta, romano, and kasseri cheeses ($4.50). Sugared pecans, dried cranberries, and gorgonzola vie for flavor dominance in the Niko's house salad ($7), which diners can shovel into their maws while perusing the restaurant's dessert menu or a wine list with more international constituents than an official metric-system fan club.
