Yesterday afternoon, it was pouring outside. It was a very good day to do nothing but vegetate in the house, so we planted ourselves in front of the TV with a bottle of wine. We were watching an old episode of Julia Child with chef Joachim Splichal who made braised lamb shanks over barley risotto when the wife asks, "so what are you going to go out and get us for dinner"?

Thinking back to this thread, we decided to order from Greek Taverna. We ordered a whole load of soup, appetizers and I ordered the mixed grill specifying the lamb be done between medium rare and rare. Their lemon chicken soup remains fantastic as does their olive bread, everything else was pretty blah and the mixed grill was over cooked. My conclusion, next time I am in the mood for lamb (especially lamb shanks) go to Amoos instead


@BklynBoy, saw the show on TV, headed to Amoos tonight, thanks for the review
