Braised Lamb Shanks

This popular favorite is returning for the entire month of October!

The tender lamb is slow cooked in our special recipe of Greek herbs, garlic and tomatoes and served with a side of steamed vegetables and oven-roasted red Greek potatoes. These lamb shanks are full of flavor and truly one-of-a-kind. Enjoy a small Greek salad ahead of time with some of our tasty garlic bread.


Suggested Wine: Makedonikos Red Wine

Kali Orexi!


5PM & 7PM
