EOS Greek Cusine on Summer Street in Stamford, CT has a very sophisticated interior and a detailed menu that offers the most common and popular Greek dishes. The restaurant prides itself for being a contemporary Greek restaurant that brings together freshness and simplicity that remind us of the Mediterranean. I was pleasantly surprised that they delivered exactly what they promised.
Greek cuisine has never been ranked high on my list but after this dinner, I have found a new favorite. The vegetarian moussaka was the best. So good that I took the leftover home and had it for breakfast at work the next day. I stood in front of my monitors (I was lucky enough to have a standing desk), checked emails and had this Greek lasagna with béchamel cream for breakfast.
Eos Sliders: 3 spiced lamb sliders with caramelized onions and roasted red pepper sauce. My choice obviously since my friend does not like lamb. The lamb was acceptable but not outstanding because too much oil was used.
Saganaki: Kefalograviera cheese flambé. Live shot of the flambé. Should have taken a video instead. The waiter walked over, lit the cheese on fire and shouted “Opa!” in less than 30 seconds. The flame was put out with a squeeze of lemon juice. Darn, I wish I thought quick enough on my feet.
Saganaki: Kefalograviera cheese flambé. This is the after shot. The cheese was still bubbling. It was much better when warm and felt heavy and salty after cooling down. Still, this was quite a food experience.
Grilled Octapodi: Grilled octopus with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Both my friend and I are big fans of octopus. This was a big portion but we enthusiastically ate it all up. The addition of capers was a welcome accent.
Always enjoyed grilled octopus with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar combination. The slight downfall of this dish is that octopus is slightly overcooked before grilling. The consistency can be a little bit more bouncy.
Veggie Moussaka: Layers of zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, lentils, potatoes and béchamel cream. I felt heavenly with this veggie moussaka… Veggie moussaka is the Greek lasagna for me now. It’s more supple than the Italian lasagna pasta layers and is richer with the flavors of vegetables and béchamel. Happy and loving it. Thank you, Danny, for insisting on ordering the vegetarian version.
What a fun meal filled with fire, flavors and new openings for me. I learned that preconceived notions can be changed as long as I dine with the right company at the right restaurant. EOS Greek Cusine gets a two thumbs up, one for the food and the other for the eye pleasing interior. Highly recommend it. My senses were completely satisfied.
