NEW YORK – On Sunday, April 24, Executive Chef Nicholas Poulmentis of Marathi, 200 Church Street in Manhattan, is creating a traditional family feast for Greek Easter brunch that will be served 8 AM-4 PM. Following the Greek tradition, Marathi will be roasting a whole lamb on a spit outdoors between Church Street and Duane Street in Tribeca.
The special $85 prix-fixe menu includes Magiritsa, the hearty traditional soup made with the innards of the lamb, followed by three types of meat slow-roasted on the spit; Kokoretsi, the traditional whole lamb served with oven-baked lemon potatoes and Greek yogurt mint sauce; Kontosouvli, an extra-large pork souvlaki paired with Greek fries and a Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce, and Baby Lamb served with Brussels sprouts and a Greek yogurt smoked poblano pepper sauce. Finally, what is a feast without dessert? The final course, Bougatsa, is a traditional Easter custard pie wrapped in golden brown crispy phyllo.
Since spring is finally upon us, guests can take advantage of Marathi’s impressive outdoor seating, and choose between the five “cabanas” overlooking Church Street, which comfortably hold six guests each and can also be connected to host larger groups, or their open-air curbside seating facing Duane Street. The two bright indoor dining rooms are, of course, another attractive option.
PHILADELPHIA – The Federation of Hellenic Societies of Philadelphia and Greater Delaware Valley announced that the Evzones, the Presidential Guard of Greece will be participating in the Philadelphia Greek Independence Day Parade on March 20.
