PAYMONS MEDITERRANEAN CAFE - Greek Independence Day

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!

Cheers -

Kelly & Davita

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

    I double confirmed with Paymon's and it appears that we are all set for 13 in the atrium. They also said that if we let them know up front they will do their best to split up the checks. Very cool! Ready for Greek Independence Day!

    So the $11 per person is just a deposit towards the bill? Do we get separate bills per person/couple or does everybody pay the same thing based on the overall bill? Are drinks separate for each?

    March 20, 2014

    • Kelly T.

      Thanks for asking Ilene. The RSVP fee is to ensure that everyone shows up and I don't make reservations for 20 and 8 show up. Embarrassing and it happened way too often before! Now, upon arrival, I give people $10 back per person (the balance is PayPal fees). We try to separate the bills as much as possible, but sometimes they make us do one check. I stopped worrying about this a long time ago as most people always pitch in their fair share whether the tab is for 4 ppl. or for 40 ppl. This must have something to do with the RSVP fee, I'm sure. Drinks are as you wish. You pay for what your order. Simple as that. I hope that covers it, if not send me a PM. Thanks!

    One question... The description says $10 RSVP fee, but it hit PayPal at $11, is this a typo? Just curious.....

    February 19, 2014

    • Kelly T.

      Weird. It should be $11 on PayPal and here. Only $10 is the net due to PayPal fees. Glad you can make it!

      February 19, 2014

    • Timothy T.

      Yes Mom and I have been here before, but it's been a while, don't remember the atrium being open then. Good food and GREAT service.
