Introducing a date to foreign cuisine can make you seem exotic, much like only communicating with them in the language you just invented. Be worldly with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $9 for $15 worth of Greek cuisine
- $12 for $20 worth of Greek cuisine
The menu stars classic Greek entrees, such as the cinnamon-seasoned beef- and eggplant-based moussaka ($13.99) and stewed lamb and kasseri cheese ($15.99). Pitas bulge with a dozen types of gyro meat along with chicken and codfish ($5.49–$6.99). The tavern doesn’t accept credit cards, so diners should remember to bring cash for tips and any orders beyond the value of their Groupon.
Olive's Greek Taverna
Walking into the lime-hued house out of which Olive's Greek Taverna operates, you are struck with the sense that you are entering an old friend’s home—a friend who is busy in the kitchen, filling the air with the aromas of seasoned beef and flame-kissed cheese. In addition to these trademark Greek dishes, the culinary team at Olive’s mingles stewed lamb with kasseri cheese and stuffs more than a dozen kinds of gyro meat into pita envelopes. Grape leaves and grilled eggplant anchor the menu in tradition, whereas more inventive pizzas arrive at tables laden with portobello mushrooms and goat cheese.
A fireplace, sunny-yellow walls, and exposed wooden beams contribute to the convivial atmosphere, and murals of the Mediterranean inspire wanderlust-stricken diners to dye their bathtub water a brighter blue. Tipplers can perch at the bar to sip their wine, and on summery nights, guests can abandon their inside voices while lounging on an outdoor patio.
