Napkins are the great equalizer, wiping smudges from the mouths of presidents and clearing Mom’s lipstick from the faces of embarrassed freshman senators. Unfold a tiny lap blanket with today’s Groupon: for $23, you get a Greek dinner for two at Opa! Greek Restaurant (up to a $46 value), which includes:
- Choice of two traditional Opa! favorites or broiler items (up to a $15 value each).
- Two glasses of house wine (up to an $8 value each).<p>
The blue- and white-hued Opa! Greek Restaurant serves up a menu of authentic Greek fare concocted from imported extra-virgin olive oil, cheese, olives, herbs, and spices. Murals of the Old Country laze in guests’ periphery as they nosh on a gyros plate loaded with sliced and seasoned beef and lamb or the spanakopita’s crisp phyllo dough layered between spinach, feta cheese, and herbs. Share a forkful of pastichio—a baked casserole of pasta, meat, and cheese bathed in béchamel sauce—with a date, or hoard the roasted leg of lamb and hiss at companions who get too close to its lemon potatoes and fresh vegetables. Each entree, including the broiled-chicken shish kebab—pieces of marinated chicken breast and vegetables set on skewers—pairs perfectly with a glass of house red wine made from California or Greek grapes.
Though Opa! Greek Restaurant sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
