Monthly Dinner Special

Braised Lamb Shank


Welcome Fall with the great flavors of this hearty meal!

We will be serving up this very popular special for the entire month of October! This dish is prepared by slow cooking the lamb shanks in a variety of Greek spices until soft and tender. The flavors of tomatoes, garlic and herbs infuse the tender lamb that is served along side Greek oven-roasted potatoes and steamed vegetables. Your meal also includes a Greek salad and garlic bread to start.

Suggested Wine: Makedonikos Red

Kali Orexi!

Mainland Beaches - Loutraki, Greece

As famous as the Greek isles are for their picturesque beaches, turquoise blue waters and magnificent landscape, the mainland has its own beach retreats worth noting. One of the greatest things about being in Greece is that no matter where you are, you are never too far from the water. Enjoy some of these beautiful pictures from Loutraki, located on Peloponnese near Corinth and only a short drive from Athens.
