Monthly Dinner Special

Braised Lamb Shank

Ring in the New Year with an old favorite!

Enjoy our popular braised lamb shank dinner for the entire month of January!

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 alongside Greek oven-roasted potatoes & steamed vegetables. Your meal also includes a salad or a cup of our homemade soup and garlic bread to start.


Suggested Wine: Makedonikos Red
