I love this place! In the mid 90's I came here all the time as a UNLV Architecture student and it was the first quality Mediterranean restaurant in town. In fact, I can attribute this restaurant as one of the reason my tastes opened up to other cuisines as well. After Indian, this on is probably my second favorite. That explains the location, what about the date?
Well, March 25th is Greek Independence Day commemorating the start of the War of Greek Independence in 1821 and this year it lands on a Tuesday. I made a reservation for 12 of us since it is a weeknight and don't expect too many. However if we grow a little that won't be an issue. They have an expansive indoor atrium that I have requested. See...
They have an extensive menu which includes Italian and Indian food as well. Indain isn't really Meditearanen, so I'm not sure why it's included, but I'll take it! They have all your classic dips, pitas, and some great entrees like Fesenjan. This Persian delicacy combines boneless chicken breast slowly cooked with crushed walnuts in a tangy semi-sweet pomegranate sauce. Served with basmati rice. YUM!
The $10 RSVP Fee is so that you can guarantee your spot and it will be returned to you upon arrival. I have also requested that at least three checks are tallied to make processing easier.
This will surely be a great night with amazing food, so come gather with us to celebrate Greek Independence Day on a Tuesday night in March!

P.s. We will for sure be at the Maryland location NOT the Sahara one. Here is their website so you can sneak a peek at the menu: http://paymons.com/index.php?/menus/appetizers_soup/1
