Tzatziki sauce has played a pivotal role in Western history, from its appearance at the Athenian assembly's first pizza party to its indelible smears on the edges of the manuscript of Homer's Odyssey. Eat history with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of authentic Greek fare and drinks at Taverna Plaka.
Proprietor Stelios Kyriacou combines an authentic Greek menu concocted from old family recipes with traditional Greek wedding festivities, from shouting "Opa!" to breaking plates. Diners can start dinner with a bang as a dancing wait staff taps their toes to the table with halloumi saganaki ($8), dousing the aged cow's milk cheese in alcoholic ouzo and igniting it for a gooey appetizer. Chefs spear kebabs with a choice of chicken, beef, or lamb ($13$17), and stuff baked eggplants ($13) with fresh tomatoes, garlic, onions, and well-aged copies of The Secret of NIMH.
As patrons sip ouzo and anchor fork tines in a solomos sti shara grilled salmon glazed with honey and pine nuts, served with lemon potatoes($18), belly dancers sashay around the room, swiveling hips in traditional Greek dances. Other entrees include lamb chops ($22) and a gyro plate ($14), and can be enjoyed on the outdoor covered patio or among the dancing legs of patrons on tables inside. Taverna Plaka offers complimentary valet parking for cars and pairs of rollerblades. Nighttime entertainment includes belly-dancing lessons, salsa dancing, and an international DJ spinning tunes on the weekends.
