Epitomizing cerebral juxtaposition, the Greeks have managed to produce some of history's most interesting persons, entrees, and factually inaccurate myths. Commemorate Grecian contributions with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Hellenic fare and wine at Odyssey Greek Taverna, with locations in St. Charles and Lombard.

The gyro gurus at Odyssey construct a menu amalgamating the diverse flavorscape of Greece with authentic Athenian cuisine. An appetizer of keftedakia—Greek-style meatballs swimming in savory tomato sauce ($5.75)—paves way toward heartier fare, such as the braised lamb, which boasts sauce-slathered sheep steak served with sides ranging from roasted potatoes to rice pilaf ($14.25). Poultry pundits will find tasty solace in the chicken riganati—a baked half chicken bathing in extra-virgin olive oil, herbs, oregano, and fresh tomatoes ($11.75)—and ravenous herbivores can hang a few fangs on the vegetarian moussaka—layered eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, and potatoes beneath a frock of spices, grated cheese, and béchamel sauce ($11.50). Diners can also bolster any feast with a glass of Makedonikos ($6.50), just one of the many Greek wines on restaurant's extensive list of liquid enhancers.

Like a culinary chameleon, Odyssey Greek Taverna appeals to diners of myriad moods and appetites. Soothing beige tones and brick motifs, along with the murals showcasing Athenian landscapes, bless the restaurant with an elegant yet relaxing atmosphere handy for wooing a date or boo-hooing in front of a date who is too beautiful for words.

Odyssey Greek Taverna

Odyssey Greek Taverna has two locations, both of which maintain old-world charm with crisp white linens, dramatic pillars, stone-textured cream walls, and interspersed colorful murals. Dinners begin with bites of moussaka, which layers eggplants, zucchini, and potatoes for a multitoned meal that doubles as a cutaway model of the earth's crust. The gyro plate showcases spreads of beef and lamb with pita, tzatziki sauce, tomato, and onions, and warm, flaky phyllo dough wraps around spanakopita —a savory spinach-cheese pie.
