pegasus restaurant & taverna.

ah, another week that josh had off work = another trip to greektown for lunch. this time, we headed to an area staple : pegasus restaurant & taverna.

pegasus opened in 1990 (woah!) with the aim of "educating diners about the delights of greek cuisine" and featuring a menu "comprised of true mediterranean cooking that our families grew up eating & we are proud to serve our guests." i'm on board!

here's what i had ...  

fava santorinis :
split pea, fava bean & roasted red pepper puree w/ virgin olive oil. 
a break from the usual hummus ... and overall, quite tasty.

vegetarian dolmades :
grapeleaves stuffed with rice & spices.
i always love dolmades & these were a perfect version.

elliniki :
greek classic salad w/ lettuce, tomatoes, onions, kalamata olives, pepperonccini & green peppers. (no feta.)
a super classic greek salad. you really just can't go wrong. everything was fresh and delicious, just how i like it. 

with so many options in greektown, pegasus is a fab contender when choosing a place for lunch or dinner. there are plenty of other vegan items on the menu, as well. so definitely worth a visit to this chicago staple.
