Taste of Greece


Enjoy the many Mediterranean flavors of Greece with this month's delicious combination plate. Only available for the month of June!

Your meal will begin with a small Greek salad or a cup of homemade soup and our house garlic bread.

The main entree is a tasty arrangement of a pork souvlaki skewer, 2 handmade dolmades, 1 spanakopita, rice pilaf and a side of tzatziki sauce for dipping. The pork is marinated and topped with our signature Greek lemon sauce. Dolmades are a Greek specialty of stuffed grape leaves, filled with ground beef and rice. The spanakopita is a flaky treat of tender phyllo dough stuffed with spinach and cheese.

Enjoy all of this for $17.95.

Suggested Wine: Makedonikos Red

Although Socrates did not write philosophical text, his teachings and beliefs were carried on and stamped into history through his students and followers. Foremost among his students was Plato. Here are some of his "words of wisdom" that were passed down:


"I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing."


"Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm and constant."


"Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for."


"Be as you wish to seem."


The tree that stands tall in the middle of the restaurant is a real Ficus. It was planted in 1992 directly under the large skylight in the center of the restaurant. It took the place of a palm tree that was originally there when the restaurant first opened in 1988. And it has been growing EVER since! Besides our live ficus tree, all of the plants in the restaurant are real!
