In both ancient Greek triathlons and ancient Greek meals the winner was whoever left the event smelling the most like lion meat. Enter the culinary arena with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a four-course Greek- and Mediterranean-cuisine tasting (a $70 value) in the Mezze Lounge at Thalassa Restaurant in Tribeca.

Garnering numerous awards for its consummate cuisine and extensive wine list, Thalassa pampers palates with innovative Mediterranean recipes, fresh ingredients, and authentic décor. A special tasting menu devised distinctively for Groupon diners begins Greek excursions with a preliminary course of fresh Maine diver sea scallops, nestled in a kataifi filo dough and adorned with sheep's milk butter and a kalamata balsamic reduction. A serving of dolmas follows, filled with veal, rice, and a tart avgolemono sauce, proving once again that avgolemono sauce is not just for topping cereal.

As difficult as choosing a favorite child or favorite city comptroller, Thalassa challenges Greek gourmands to choose between two mouthwatering main dishes: a tender lamb shank infused with a decadent wine sauce and served alongside lemon potatoes, or a fire-roasted Mediterranean sea bream paired with lemon potatoes and wild steamed greens. Finally, a delicate Valrhona-chocolate dome proposes to blushing taste buds by revealing a honey-suffused morsel of flaky ekmek kataifi adorned with rich cream and chopped pistachios.


Multiple outlets have featured Thalassa Restaurant, including the New York Times. Citysearchers give the restaurant an average of 4.5 stars, and 66 Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars. OpenTable reviewers give it a 4.1-star average.
