Dear Friends Who Love Food,
This afternoon, Michelle and I were sitting around like little old Greek ladies, sipping Ouzo and roasting a lamb in our toaster oven and complaining about the neighbor’s brash new donkey and bragging about who had skinny-dipped the most in the Aegean Sea with that village boy up the lane who pretty much is the spitting image of Apollo (the Greek God of Sexy Hotness) and moaning about how much we miss our beloved supper club Table For Twelve.
And while we’re planning to revive Table For Twelve next month with a yet-to-be-announced supper, it occurred to us that we might not be the only ones who’d like to eat lamb and drink Ouzo and skinny dip with Apollo. Serendipitously, it just so happens that Olympic Provisions Southeast is hosting a fantastically delicious lamb dinner THIS SUNDAY, complete with lots of lamb that has not been roasted in a toaster oven, salami of the Gods, and complimentary Ouzo for all our guests. Because like any good Greek, we hate to get blotto alone. Opa! There will also be a kiddy pool provided for skinny dipping but you’re going to have to woo Apollo on your own. We’ll be too busy gossiping about your donkey.
Join us this Sunday, July 24th at 5pm at Olympic Provisions Southeast for some roaring good Greek times and chef Alex Yoder’s (whose often been told he is the spitting image of Apollo) brilliant Greek-inspired lamb-riffic menu.
Baby romaine lettuce, tarragon vinaigrette
Olive oil-poached Albacore tuna, cranberry beans, pickled vegetables
Salad of grilled lamb leg, fava beans, sugar snap peas, watercress, feta cheese
Braised lamb shoulder, corona beans, basil pesto
Chocolate salami, orange marmalade, salt and pepper shortbread cookies
And if that weren’t exciting enough, Michelle and I will welcome you with a shot of Ouzo and a hearty supply of Loukanika (Olympic Provisions’ signature Greek salami and the official food of the Gods) on the view-endowed rooftop of the Olympic Mills building. If that doesn’t make you scream Opa!, frankly we don’t know what will. (Insert Apollo joke here, I can’t or Michelle will censor it.)
When: Sunday, July 24, 5 pm
Where: Olympic Provisions Southeast, 107 SE Washington St.
What: Lamb, Loukanika, Ouzo, Memorable Memories
Cost: $65 (optional four-course wine pairing $20 additional)
Why: Because Sundays are for feasting and skinny-dipping with Apollo

See you at the table,
Jen & Michelle
