Baby Back Ribs like None Other

One of the staple foods here at Five Columns has to be our deliciously tender Baby Back Ribs! A favorite since we opened in 1987, you can enjoy them with a traditional BBQ sauce or our original Greek lemon sauce. Either way, you'll love them!

But, don't take our word for it....

"Greek ribs - my fave meal in town! First time, will be back often. Great rib rub - lovely job cooking the ribs. And I am a connoisseur of ribs." Sean Dwyer

Greek Coffee

The perfect way to end a satisfying meal at Five Columns: Greek coffee and a decadent piece of Dini's homemade baklava!

Greek coffee is a strong brew of very finely ground coffee beans that is served with a little foam on top and a layer of thick grounds in the bottom of the cup. Made to order with just water, sugar & coffee, you specify exactly how sweet (or not sweet) and how strong you would like it. Milk or cream is not traditionally added to the coffee and you must not stir the coffee as you are enjoying it. Doing this will disturb all the grounds that have settled to the bottom.

In a small pot called the "briki" the coffee, water and sugar is measured out accordingly and thoroughly stirred, then brought almost to a boil over high heat.  A close eye must be kept on the coffee as to ensure the proper removal from the fire. The coffee will slowly start to rise and as it reaches the top of the briki, quickly remove it and pour into your cup. Not allowing the coffee to come to a full boil ensures that you will have the proper amount of foam in you cup. Greek coffee has a very full, strong, almost nutty and very robust flavor.
