Calypso’s Taverna

Ah, Calypso’s.  This would be my second visit after a memorable first one a couple years ago. Some of us were quite hungry as we had spent a few hours in the climbing gym.   We ordered the appetizer platter which advertised for two, but big enough for the four of us. It came with calamari, poseidon garithes, spanakopita, soutzoukakia, tzatziki and pita. It was very filling and delicious.  I had the Kleftiko, which is slow roasted lamb shank.  It was some of the best lamb shank I’ve ever had. They also had a roasted suckling pig as a special. I would have liked to try that too.

The service is not boring.  Very Greek I assume. It was attentive, but not overbearing.  Be prepared to eat or take it home as the portions are substantial. Has all the trappings of a family run restaurant.  One of those gems that should eventually catch the eye of shows such as You Gotta Eat Here!
