It turns out that when Shia LeBouf is not acting in a Transformer movie, he waits tables at Daphne. So if you love Mediterranean food and have a thing for Shia, this is the place for you;It is definitely "more than meets the eye".
Appetizer: The Mixed Appetizer Platter : Hummus (brown), Mediterranean Dip (red),
and Eggplant with Sauce (not the brown or red one)
The Hummus was just your normal tasty hummus. The Mediterranean Dip was L's favorite, made up of roasted red pepper, feta cheese, walnuts, and EVOO. The Eggplant with Sauce was A's Favorite, made up of cubed eggplant, green and red peppers, all in a tomato and garlic sauce.
Served with warm pita, could have been enough for a meal for two! But we had to try a couple other things...
Gyro Salad (A) right
Very fresh tasting, TONS of Feta, tomatoes, little cucumber and nicely spiced warm strips of gyro meat. Very large portions (especially after all the tasty dips in the appetizer)
only negative, just a few too many onions for my liking (and probably my husband's for when i come home to tell him about this place). But easily removed!
Mediterranean Salad (L) left (should be called the Feta Lover's Salad)
I'd like to consider myself a Greek/Mediterranean salad connoisseur, having ordered one in the majority of the restaurants that offer it. When I saw the amount of feta cheese in my salad, I think a tear of joy ran down my face. I had enough feta to make every bite FETA-licious. The dressing was good, not great. Overall, it was a pretty awesome salad.
*Note how L's is still has it's nice presentation? If it wasn't for her and reminding me, I'd have no pictures... apparently, I'm just too excited to wait!
Perfect mix of sweet, nutty, but not sticky or syrup-y, both the pistachios and walnuts were very finely ground, enough to make even a nut-hater (L) enjoy
(again, note the lack of waiting.....and the extra feta on the table from our salads)
A: Single Chair & Blind Faith
L: Wacko & Blind Faith
