Tucked away in a shopping center on East Jericho Turnpike
is the Greek Grill of Huntington, a bright, sunny spot that
was making brisk business with the afternoon lunch crowd Monday.
And for good reason as the staff greeted the regulars
warmly, almost like family members, their presentation of
traditional Greek staples shined brightly.
Our friends at the Long Island Press honored the Greek Grill
in their Best of 2011 section, and after a recent visit, we
certainly understand why.
We started with a combination plate ($11.25), which includes
fried meatballs called keftedes ($7.15 for a full order);
stuffed grape leaves and hummus ($5.95 for a full order).
Crunchy on the outside and warm and moist on the inside, the
keftedes are bite-sized and perfect for the chilly wintertime
weather that is approaching. And be sure to scoop some of
the hummus onto the fresh, warm pita bread. We emphasize scoop
the Greek Grills hummus is thick, rich and filling.
The Greek Grills sandwich selection is impressive. We
stuck to classics like their gyro ($7.35), which boasts thinly
sliced, flavorful beef and lamb packed perfectly into a pita.
The Tzatziki sauce strikes the right balance in its consistency,
too. Want your gyro on a platter? Order the gyro plate ($15.35)
and its served with soup, pita bread, salad and fries
We also enjoyed the veal souvlaki sandwich ($7.95; $17.95
for a platter). Its the same concept as a gyro, but
with chunks of tender, seasoned veal, which is expertly prepared.
And hats off to the chef those of you who cook veal
now and again know how delicate preparing it can be.
Greek salads ($5.95 for a small to $16.95 for family size)
are fresh, colorful and loaded with radishes, peppers, red
onions, feta cheese and stuffed grape leaves. And the falalel
($6.55 for a sandwich; $14.25 for a platter) is a savory,
satisfying vegetarian choice.
And thats just the beginning of the menu at the Greek
Grill there are plenty of pork, seafood, burger, steak
and chops dishes to choose from, none of them exceeding $21
before tax. An enticing lunch special menu offers value-priced,
tasty salad and sandwich combinations. Whatever you choose,
were confident youll be pleased with your decision.
