Posts Tagged ‘greek salads’

Surprisingly enough, I have never written about Posto, one of my first favorite restaurants when I moved to the city. It was a block away from my first apartment (in StuyTown) and I have been there with many a’friend. And it’s definitely the first place I think of when I want a good Greek salad. In Detroit, you can get a Greek Salad at what seems like pretty much any restaurant in the city. When I moved here, I remember being shocked at how hard it was to find one on a menu (besides in Astoria, but how often do I feel like trekking out there?). So this one is pretty good. Lots of vegetables and a heap of feta, paired with olive oil and vinegar. I could eat in any day of the week. Oh, and they also have pizza:

We ordered two individual pizzas; one meatlovers (which I hate ordering, the word “meatlover” sounds so gross) and one fromaggio bianco (fresh ricotta, fresh mozzarella, spinach, and basil). I actually think my favorite here is the Meatball Classic, but we didn’t get it this time around. We did, however, get some bread pudding for dessert:

Cause that was necessary. The butter/sugar combination on the plate turned into a glaze that you could pick up with your fork. It’s all a little much. But it’s also a little good. And Posto is cute! You sit outside on picnic tables, which we snagged no problem, eating that day an old person’s dinner of 5 p.m. Score!

Abby is Greek. I like Greek food (study abroad, what?). We are great friends.

When I first moved to the city, Abby visited me and we went to Astoria to meet up with her Greek friend and he took us to a fabulous restaurant where we ordered what felt like the entire menu. Yesterday we went on an adventure to Bay Ridge to go to Agnanti Meze.

I have a takeout menu in which Abby starred everything we ordered, because she did all the ordering and I was just happy to be there.

The only thing I made us order was a Greek salad, which you could say is a boring thing to order, but traditional Greek salads are pretty much my favorite thing in the world.

I love tomatoes, cucumbers, and FETA!

This is ntakos: Cretan rusk, tomatoes, feta, olives, capers, oregano and olive oil. Abby says she cannot buy Cretan rusk anywhere in Michigan and she really wanted to try it, so we made sure Agnanti had it on the menu before we went.

Kolokythokeftedes Mykonos: zucchini and cheese croquets that were really good.

Beef bourek, which was maybe my favorite. The crust was homemade and phenomenal. I would order this again.

We also got vegetables pikilia: fried zucchini, eggplant, peppers and garlic mashed potatoes. Basically we got a lot of food.

There was a huge family sitting next to us and they kept ordering more and more food and it was kind of hilarious. The servers would come out carrying a bunch of plates and go back to the kitchen and come back out with their arms full of more. That’s just the Greek culture though. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and they ordered a bunch of appetizers and THEN the main course. I love Greek food. And I love Abby. She has left me now and I am very sad. She’s going to move here and have a classy housewarming party and make a ton of Greek dishes and it’s going to be great. Come back to Agnanti with me soon, Abby!
