It’s National Grilled Cheese Day because some people need a made up holiday to celebrate the grilled cheese. But not us at Foobooz World Headquarters. After all, I’ve called a grilled cheese by Bobby Flay “an explosion of taste in my mouth” and Jason Sheehan recently admitted that a grilled cheese matters to him more than a thick steak or even a lobster tail. As if today’s weather wasn’t enough of a reason to go for a grilled cheese at lunchtime, maybe this list will inspire you.
Owners George and Vasiliki Tsiouris and chef Bobby Saritsoglou are celebrating the fifth anniversary of Midtown Village’s Opa today with a special menu of $5 bites and drinks all day.
The menu includes favorites like hummus with yellow fava bean puree, slow cook roast pork and spanakopita stuffed with spinach, kefalotiri and feta cheese.
Drink deals are also available including:
The specials are available all day as is the rest of Opa’s menu of Greek dishes.
On Tuesday, December 15th, George and Vasiliki Tsiouris, along with chef Bobby Saritsoglou are hosting author and Greek chef Diane Kochilas at Opa.
It’s a two part event starting with Kochilas demoing a few dishes from her book Ikaria: Food, Life and Longevity from the Island where People Forget to Die. The demo will be followed by a five-course collaborative dinner prepared by Saritsolgou and Kochilas.
Kochilas is an award-winning cookbook author, and cooking school owner, she has been at the forefront of bringing Greek cuisine to an international audience for many years.
