I went solo for lunch. The menu was not extensive but there was definitely something for everyone, from salads to fish and beyond. Seeking an alternative to fish, I had a fantastic gyro with both lamb and beef. One meat was crispy, the other softer, which gave a nice contrast of textures. The tzatziki was excellent and the pita hot and fresh. The only problem was the size of the lettuce leaves, which were so large that I removed them from the pita, cut them up, then put them back in. The accompanying side dish was listed as ‘lemon potatoes’; they turned out to be French fries with a lemony flavor dusted with parmesan cheese. I’m usually not a fry eater, but these were irresistible. Portion sizes of both were so ample that I took half home to enjoy later.
For dessert I chose the lemon crème brulee. There was just the right amount of crust on top and the crème texture itself was perfection. Unfortunately, there was barely a hint of citrus flavor that certainly wasn’t identifiable as lemon. However, I ate every bit & scraped the dish.
A small matter to some, but something I especially appreciated was that the delicious iced tea was served in a large, thick real-glass glass which kept the tea cold. Also, it was nice to have a tablecloth and cloth napkins.
