We started our Greek, gastronomic journey with bouche of Tzatziki and Tarama, followed by a dish of grilled haloumi cheese with fresh figs over a shaved fennel salad with toasted hazelnuts and a balsamic glaze. A perfectly Grilled Octopus came next with caramelized onions, followed by Seafood Orzo topped with mussels, octopus, shrimp and calamari. Lamb Chops were also served with honey glazed carrots and oregano juice. Last but not least, a delicious Bread Pudding was served for dessert with almonds, cinnamon, chestnut gelato and praline cream. Each course was paired perfectly with specialty wines from Greece, courtesy of Wine Director Michael Coll.
