The ancient Greeks congregated at the Olympic games to celebrate their greatest athletes, boo their most nearsighted referees, and support their friendliest gyro vendors. Savor historical flavors with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Greek fare and drinks at Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna in Greektown.

Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna inspires mouth mirth with a mélange of Greek and Mediterranean cuisines created from traditional recipes and quality ingredients. Broader than Hercules’s handlebar moustache, the restaurant’s menu offers eaters an array of pastas, salads, lamb chops, succulent steaks, and sea bass flown in from the Mediterranean. Broilerized bites include souvlaki kebabs of pork tenderloin marinated in olive oil and herbs and broiled on a skewer of veggies ($14.95), and the list of Greek specialties features mousakas—a dish consisting of layered eggplant, zucchini, grated cheese, and ground beef and lamb topped with béchamel sauce ($14.95). The lunch menu includes gyros ($6.25) as well as other midday munchables ideal for working lunches with stuffed-animal coworkers.

Pegasus’s stunning coliseum of a dining room is outfitted with murals depicting the Greek islands and contains enough tables for army of hungry Trojan War reenactors. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, dine on Pegasus’s mighty rooftop veranda, which gives diners an elegant, unobstructed view of the Chicago skyline and early-detection capabilities to guard against hordes of invading Spartans.

Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna

A family from the Patras region on Greece's western coast decided to bring the Mediterranean influences of home to Chicago's Greektown, opening Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna. Though diners can find Greek favorites such as saganaki and gyros on the menu, the servers also recommend kitchen specialties such as char-grilled octopus and center-cut lamb chops. Once or twice a week, they'll fly in fresh Mediterranean sea bass, which chefs filet tableside before seasoning it simply with salt, pepper, olive oil, and oregano.

The chefs use spices imported from Greece to season their dishes and get fresh bread from their sister restaurant, the nearby Artopolis Bakery and Cafe. In the main dining room, bright-blue accents stand against breezy whites and creams, and an eye-popping mural of an island vista stands next to white-draped tables. In addition to a private area that can be reserved for events, an outdoor veranda provides a place for guests to devour mezedes, or small plates, as they gaze at Chicago's skyline and watch hobbyists float between buildings, clutching the wings of giant birds.
