If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some Greek fare with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Greek fare at Pastitsio, located in Lower Lawrenceville.
A host of homemade treats made with locally sourced ingredients populate plates and gratify Greek cravings at Pastitsio's gourmet deli. Every sauce, marinade, and dressing is made from scratch, and the moussaka maestros fetch their culinary components from within 100 miles to lower emissions and support local farmers. Warm layers of penne and ground beef bask in a hearty béchamel sauce in the eponymous Pastitsio ($5.99/$8.99), and flaky phyllo dough protects spinach and feta from roving bands of predatory quiches in the spanakopita ($4.99/$7.99). Grape leaves are packed with morsels of rice and fresh herbs within Pastitsio's aromatic dolmathes ($8.99/lb). Those hoping to ingest Aristotle's prodigious wisdom for picking football winners by biting into warm pita bread can snack on the Pastitsio's gyro, which is packed with homemade lamb meat ($6.99). A mélange of fresh vegetable, bean, and potato salads adorn the menu, and crisp baklava is ideal for sating quick honey hankerings ($1.49).
- Its offerings are few, but carefully chosen and temptingly proffered. They consist primarily of the freshest, most flavorful versions imaginable of traditional Greek dishes such as spanakopita or the eponymous baked macaroni casserole. – Angelique Bamberg and Jason Roth, Pittsburgh City Paper
