"Eleni's has created their own Greek
masterpieces, in the form of two restaurants, which share a similar
menu as exhaustive as The Odyssey's list of characters"
Philoxenia (hospitality) Estiatorio (restaurant)
We offer many more appetizers than you would normally find on a
menu. On the island of Crete friends will gather at an Estiatorio
or Taverna and enjoy long evenings of shared appetizers, wine
and conversation... lingering over the freshness. We invite you to embrace this amicable custom while we hand make each dish to order.
We believe that great food can only
come from great ingredients. Whenever available, we serve fresh
organic vegetables. All the meat we serve is raised respectfully
without hormones: Oregon Painted Hills beef, Carlton pork, Draper
Valley free range chickens and new Zealand lambs. The olive oil we use is a very fine,
first pressing from the island of Crete.
To your Health!
A study of diets of the world reported in Scientific American concluded that the diet of Crete, with its emphasis on fresh vegetables, olive oil and small amounts of meat, is the healthiest diet on Earth. Eleni's is pleased to share this healthful cooking heritage with you.
