    Dining in the style of the Greek Islands.Taverna Mykonos (** 1/2)
    Greek Islands Dining for your Adirondack Vacation.


    Here's a wonderul discovery to brighten up your Fourpeaks vacation. Taverna style cuisine--informal, relaxed. Pleasant atmosphere. Greek music (taped, of course). Family owned and operated. Excellent Greek wines and beers.
    Near Downtown Lake Placid at 38 Saranac Avenue. Phone 523-1164. Gabriel and his family are from Astoria (Queens) and live by the motel next door, which they own. He cooks in an open kitchen. Grills beautifully. Watch him at work and have a chat. (He enjoys this and it's the right way to behave in a Taverna.) Greek wine and beer (see my choices below). Entrees $10-20. Full meal for two about $60. Just sanwiches (pita rolls), much less.

    One of our favorite places for food, atmosphere and nice folks whenever we dine in Placid.

    Here are some of our most frequent selections:
    Appetizers.
    There are lots more and they're all worth trying. Make this a dinner. We often do.
  • Taramosalata Red caviar whipped with cream cheese, fresh garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Dip with pita. Mmmmmmm.
  • Tzaziki Yogurt dip with grated cucumbers and fresh garlic, white wine and lemon juice. Dip with pita. And have some olives with it. Mmmmmmm.
  • Elies marinata. Delicious assortment of Greek olives marinated in olive oil, fresh garlic and herbs.
  • Garithes Shrimp sauteed in olive oil with garlic, spices and wine.

    Mykonos. One the pretty Greek Islands. Greek Salad. A must course. (Entrees come with.)
    Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, carrots, celery, feta cheese and olives. (Ask for anchovies if you like. For those in the know.)

    Entrees. Make sure you've left room for these hearty portions.
  • Shish Kebob. Leg of lamb cubed and marinated in wine and herbs. Order a platter or (smaller portion) in a pita sandwich, with lettuce, tomato and tzatziki.
  • Rib Eye Steak Delicously prepared, marinated and grilled the way you like.
  • Red Snapper Whole red snapper marinated and broiled to prefection.
  • Swordfish Grilled thick filet marinated with a special blend of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and herbs.

    Desserts. Traditional sweet and coffee.
  • Ekmek kadayef Cream pastry (flaky fillo dough).
  • Baklavah Honey and nuts pastry (flaky fillo dough).
  • Greek (Turkish) coffee Normal (very sweet) or Medium (moderately sweet).

    Greek wine and beer. Highly reccommended for a taverna experience.
  • Greek beer All the Greek imports seem to be well flavored highly enjoyable examples of European white beer (not malty or brown), by kreusening method (yeast in bottle). The brands have changed according to availability, but all so far are similar.
  • Santorini The best on the list. A rare, full flavored white wine. Reminds me of the rare Rhone Cornas. A treat. 13% alcohol. Wow!
  • Santa Helena A light, very popular Greek wine. Cheap. 11%. Try it for the experience.
