When thrown with a snap of the wrist, a whizzing pita can easily cut through any waterfall, cloud, or hunger attack. Embrace pillowy projectiles with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mediterranean cuisine at Okeanos in Brooklyn.
The mousaka makers at Okeanos wield Mediterranean insights while crafting a diverse dinner menu. Start off with grilled octopus ($8) or a dip platter ($12) with dill yogurt, fish roe caviar, and hummus that's hankering for pita tip attention. Organic mesclun greens—picked from YaYa's backyard—mingle with the variety of fruits, nuts, and cheeses dancing amid myriad authentic salads ($8). During lunch, diners can hang a few fangs on burgers ($10) or hearty sandwiches ($10) served with a side of fresh-cut, feta- and oregano-laden fries. For a sweetened ending, unwrap the flaky and sticky layers of the homemade baklava ($3), which is, like most Thanksgiving turkeys, baked inside the house. Okeanos also serves up an American-style brunch on weekends (10 a.m.–4 p.m.)
No matter the weather, the interior of Okeanos remains toasty and toasty-toned with terra-cotta walls, sidewalk-revealing windows, and crisp tablecloths. The darkly stained, full-service bar also slings beer, wine, and spirits, including ouzo, to any guests who prefer to shake up their meal, rather than stir it into their beverage.
