Roasted Lamb Shoulder

Slow cooked and full of flavor, we will be featuring roasted lamb shoulder for the month of April as our dinner special.

Slow roasting for hours makes this lamb dish tender and flavorful as it's prepared with all the classic flavors of the Mediterranean: olive oil, garlic and a special blend of Greek herbs. 

This complete meal is served with a Greek salad and garlic bread to start, as well as your choice of rice pilaf or potatoes. 


Suggested Wine: Retsina

A: Corinth Canal in Greece

Built in 1881 as a passage to connect the Gulf of Corinth to the Saronic Gulf. The canal separates the Peloponnese from the rest of mainland Greece, making the Peloponnese an island. It is almost 4 miles long and only 82 feet wide.

Sunday, April 1st: Catholic Easter
Sunday, April 8th: Orthodox Easter

Happy Easter!

Ever wonder why Greek Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter on a different day?

There are basically 2 reasons for this. 

The first reason has to do with the calendar that is used to calculate the date of Easter. The Orthodox Church uses the Julian calendar, which is about 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar that the Catholic church follows. 

The second reason is that the Orthodox church does not observe Easter until the Jewish Passover has been completed. This rule was set back in 325 AD, in order to preserve the Biblical sequence of Christ's passion. 

The combination of these two reasons usually means that Orthodox Christians are celebrating Easter after everyone else, although on a few occasions, Easter has lined up on the same day. 

Greek Easter Traditions: 

*Dying Red Easter Eggs

*Cracking of the Easter Eggs - a friendly competition to see whose egg cracks last. Each family member takes turns going around with their "chosen" egg and taps everyone else's egg just hard enough to see which one will crack.

*Midnight Liturgy on Saturday night to celebrate the Easter resurrection right at midnight. 

*Baking Tsoureki - a sweet bread

*Roasting Lamb or Pig - having a big feast with family and friends
