Our Concept and Guest Experience
The "Mediterranean Experience" will have you begin your journey at the family "Taverna Table". Generous displays of fruits, vegetables, olive oils, "Mezethes" (traditional appetizers), and hand made pastries all build anticipation for your dining adventure.
You are warmly seated in The Mediterranean Room. To help immerse you in the lifestyle and culture of the Mediterranean people, this room has been elegantly adorned with ceramic plates, ancient urns, and gauzy fabrics . Soothing colors and spacious seating will encourage you to relax and enjoy the experience with friends and family.
A menu of family favorites … recipes using only the freshest herbs, imported olive oils, specially selected vegetables, seafood, & meats is proudly offered to all "guests in our home". Hot Pita bread, freshly baked in the dining room, races from the oven to your table along with European olives, roasted garlic, and Cretan extra virgin olive oil. That's just the beginning!
And for the wine enthusiast, there is a one of a kind "Wine Room" housing more than 1000 unique and affordable wines form Greece, Italy, Spain, Israel, North Africa, Turkey, and France. Kefalograviera, Manchego, Kasseri, and Roquefort are only some of the imported cheeses we offer to compliment these unusual wines. Yet this room is more than a place to taste great wine and cheese …It is an intimate private setting where a five course dinner, paired with allocated wines, will be especially prepared for you by our executive chef. The Wine Room, by reservation only, is the perfect place to ‘ask her to marry you'.
A great beginning leading to a wonderful evening deserves a fantastic ending. Yes, we have saved the best for last. Our knowledgeable server wheels an old world wooden cart of the most irresistible sweets and pastries right to your table. Baklava, Ricotta Cheesecake with figs & honey, Crème Caramel, Galactobouriko, and an assortment of Mediterranean Cookies are just a few of the finishing touches impossible to refuse … all baked fresh daily in our own kitchen from scratch! Glass press pots of loose leaf teas, Turkish coffee, espresso, and cappuccino are prepared tableside. Say good night with a glass of sherry, Ouzo, or one of our many fine Grappas.
n celebration of the Mediterranean lifestyle and to honor our family's heritage, the Backos family proudly invites you to experience The Mediterranean Room.
