Walking down the street a shiny rotisserie oven caught our eye, the wafting scent of smoky chicken and crispy pork drew us right up to the restaurant window, but it was the sight of all that glistening meat, slowly rotating in a hypnotic motion that seared the deal, we must eat NOW!  

Elia Lemoni is a laid back, no fuss local eatery. 3:30pm and the place was packed with people ranging from college students to fancy businessmen. We sat at a small table in the middle of the busy dining room, fresh bread and water delivered within seconds. Of course the entire menu was in Greek alphabet and we had no idea what was what but we were sure that we wanted lots of rotisserie meat plus a side of the mushroom looking thing the people beside us were eating.

Matt ordered a beer and I opted for the local boxed red wine served in a cute pitcher.

 

 

In front of me is succulent smoky pork, so soft you can eat with a fork. Wild mushrooms in oil and balsamic vinegar topped with bacon. In Matt’s plate, 2 deboned chicken thighs packed with rotisserie flavor. OPA!
