Lunch with Brian

« Pei Wei | Mandola's Italian Market »

Athenian Grill, August 5, 2009

At Athenian Grill, Brian and I ordered Combo Plates with gyro and chicken meat, rice with almonds and peas, Greek salad and spanakopita (a spinach pastry). We both asked for extra tzatziki sauce. When I asked, the very nice man at the counter answered, "Of course!"

Brian and I agreed that the chicken at Athenian Grill is the best chicken of all the greek places we've been. It's thinly sliced and perfectly spiced.

Brian told me a recipe for a drink that's almost like a mimosa, but without champagne so it's cheaper. It's equal parts vodka, pulp free orange juice and sprite. Since it's almost like a screwdriver, too, I dubbed it the screwmosa.

Got Tzatziki (Brian with a tzatziki sauce mustache).

I love the name screwmosa! As soon as I'm no longer pregnant, I'll have to make one!

1) Screwmosa is the best name for a drink ever.
2) Brian's Got Tzatziki? should be on billboards across America. It appears I have a new project.
