Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Bring bounteous Hellenic fare across the wine-dark sea and straight into your mouth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Greek cuisine from Tasso’s. Serving traditional Greek dishes since 1976, Tasso’s has earned a reputation for its authentic Mediterranean flavors and upbeat party atmosphere. Diners can start their foray into the dinner menu with the spinach-and-feta-filled spanakopita ($7.50) before indulging in Corinthian lamb chops ($18.95) or mousaka ($15.95), a combination of eggplant, ground beef, and parmesan cheese that, like most ancient Greek philosophers, comes swaddled in bechamel sauce. Belly dancers and live musicians provide toe-tapping, gut-undulating entertainment to complement the stellar savories, and smashable plates stand stoically by, ready to serve their festive purpose.
- The food at Tasso's is excellent. And all the cacophony can be highly entertaining if you're in the right mood for it. – Charles Ferruzza, Pitch
- The very air in this place is electric, festive. You can't help but have some ouzo and clap and shout "Opa!" as the night progresses. – Heather W., Yelp, 3/22/10
