CityScope’s Authentic Eats feature highlights our Grilled Lamb Chops dish, a meal that is about as Greek as it gets. At our Chattanooga Restaurant, Acropolis, we aim always to serve authentic, Greek-inspired dishes, and always with the freshest ingredients. The lamp chops dish is the perfect meal to share, harkening back to Greek culture and cuisine.
Chattanooga’s esteemed CityScope highlighted local spring menu items from several restaurants around the city, several of which are from our very own kitchen at Acropolis. Our Hamilton Place restaurant is proud to be included in such a list! Come try our seasonal menu items as you usher in a new Spring.
The brisk February weather calls for seasonally-inspired meals! Sometimes a little stick-to-your-bones pot roast is all you need to turn a bad day around. Or perhaps you’d prefer a light winter salad with delicious candied nuts? Before spring springs, swing through Acropolis Mediterranean Grill and indulge in one of our winter menu specials before they’re gone.
February is National Heart Month! So what better time to take note of your habits, check in with your heart, and make sure you’re doing everything you should be to keep it healthy? Take control of your heart health by eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, avoiding habits like smoking, and managing your blood pressure and cholesterol. Also, practicing the Mediterranean diet is a great way to work toward greater heart health!
For Greeks, a New Year’s celebration isn’t complete without Vasilopita. Similar to the King Cakes of Mardi Gras, Vasilopita contains a gold coin or trinket, which is said to bring luck to the receiver. Each New Year’s Day families cut the cake, blessing the house and bringing luck to the family for the coming years. Cake is sliced and given to all those present, in order from oldest to youngest. Depending on the culture and family, bread can also be sliced in order to symbolize God, saints, the poor, and the household.
One thing that makes the holiday season so enjoyable is the delicious food that comes along with it. It’s all about time with family, cozy fireside conversations, festivities galore, and the most delicious things to eat. But this time of year can also be super hectic, busy, and high stress. With so much going on and so many things to accomplish, it can be hard to make time to prepare food for your family gatherings. That’s where we come in!
