Sure, all the pork addicts will be headed out to Cochon 555 this weekend. But what about something for you people who like to eat a little bit lower down on the Pyramid Of Delicious Animals?
At the Drury Beer Garden behind Opa in Midtown Village, they’re kicking off their series of “Summer Souvlas”. So what is a Summer Souvla, you may ask? It’s an excuse to get together, roast some giant chunk of meat on a spit, and then, well, eat it. Also, there’s some drinking involved. So, you know, a good time all around.
During Opa’s happy hour (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) there will be free bites at the bar. The Bekris cocktail, Metaxa (a brandy based liqueur is regarded as the spirit for the holiday in Greece), gin and bitters is available all day for $5.
A special four-course prixe fixe menu is available all day for $25. An optional $25 wine or spirits pairing is also being offered.
Today is Opa’s third anniversary and the Greek restaurant is celebrating with a menu of $3 drinks and food. The menu is offered all day and night, at the bar and also at the tables.
Skewers, croquettes, Greekified fries and baklava make up some of the food options while all drafts, Bell’s Two Hearted Ale and a vodka cocktail are all available for just $3.
