EOS, in the Top 100 Greek spot list, celebrates 3rd birthday in style! EOS Greek Cuisine – Stamford, CT

29 Jun

Have your baklava and eat it too!

EOS Greek Cuisine in downtown Stamford is celebrating three years of kick ass Greek food that just, plainly and simply, freaking rocks.  How hardcore is EOS?  Well, they’ve been included in the Top 100 Greek Restaurants in the U.S. by The National Herald.  Notice they are the only Connecticut Greek spot on this list?  So, if you’ve never had a chance to go there, or if you’re a seasoned (hahahaha) vet, we’ve got a great time for you to visit.

Tuesday, 7/19/11

From 5-10 p.m.

$45 per person

You know the deal:  pick an option from each course, and commence Omnoming.  Here’s a breakdown of what we’d pick:

Course 1:  Batzaria.  We know Kristien is chemically dependent on goat cheese and with the beets and the sauce…damn right she’s getting that.

Course 2: Avgolemono.  When restaurants say, “Our famous blah blah,” we don’t usually listen.  But, if EOS says that, we listen.  We’re excited to try this course because their use of lemon is superb here.  If you’ve tried their lemon potatoes, you know this is true.  We loved those potatoes so much that we tried to duplicate them at home.  Yes, they turned out well, but they were missing that real kick that only EOS has.  

Course 3: Arni Kebab.  If you've been to a few Greek spots, you know they probably have lamb on the menu.  We actually think it's part of the Greek law:  thou must serve lamb.  So, if God has ordained it, who are we to argue?  Look at this kebab:  char-grilled lamb with peppers, onions, and tomates served with-wait for it-lemon zest mashed potatoes.  Holy Moses!  Please refer to how great their use of lemon is with Course 2, then come back here, then read again, then come back here.

Course 4: Baklava Sundae.  You are officially Greek if you enjoy kickin' back and noshing on some baklava.  But, really, what better way to enjoy it then by using it to create an ice cream sundae with?  The baklava isn't too chewy or too stick-to-your-teeth-for-the-next-ten-daysish.  Great dessert for baklava lovers or for a person who is experimenting and is a virgin to Greek desserts. ;)

    Since i was timid, i went fairly safe – souvlaki and spanikopita appitizers.
    My non-greek friend went with the EOS burger and i punted and did a salad.

    The lamb in the souvlaki was flavorful, but tough. Honestly, i have lamb that was more tender from a street vendor.
    The spanikopita – I am used to Feta cheese with the real intense taste. When i can i go to Astoria markets for it.
    Now in reallity, this is a Greek thing and i do not think angloes would do well with it, so the “spinach pie lacked umh for me, I think everyone else would love it.
    My friend burger was a technical problem – he ordered medium rare and got medium well. He does not complain but it was not what he ordered.
    That was my timid entrance to EOS.
    I looked for, but did not see a special Greek Cheese called Haloumi, something you can fry.
    I did not try desert because, frankly, i did not want to be more disappointed.
    My mother has told me the Baklava i make is the best she has ever had – so i do so for good reason.

    Okay i did not wait for July 19th, but if something is included in the top 100, i should check it out right????
    There is a problem of course, being 3rd generation Greek on my mom’s side and learned Greek cooking from her, i never found what i was looking for except at the Greek Church Festivals where all the mothers cook.
    Do not get me wrong, it was good, but if this is the top 100 of Greek resteraunts in the country, i know why i have been disappointed. It was good, not great, it did not blow me away as i was hoping. My apologies, i cook better than this, and i am not a great greek cook.

      Man, wish you had a better experience. We know what it’s like to judge a restaurant based on what you grew up with. We are both Italian, so we tend to be more critical of that cuisine. Kristien, for example, compares meatballs to her grandma’s. I’m curious, what did you order that was just good?

    […] EOS in Stamford is, without a doubt, our favorite Greek restaurant around.  We’ve had other Greek food and it’s good, but they all seem to fall short of what EOS does and does so well.  They not only have some great classics, but they also throw modern twists in to keep their cuisine and menu fresh and exciting.  It seems strange to think they’ve only been around for 5 years, but that’s what they are celebrating this coming Sunday and Monday, 7/21 and 7/22.  The party begins at 5 pm and goes until closing.  And, you know how much the people at EOS like to party!  Opa!
