Cristo's Minneapolis Greek Restaurant
I've never been to Greece, at least not yet, so I cannot attest to the authenticity of the dishes but if you want a good Greek dish, hie yourself over to Cristo's Greek restaurant in Minneapolis. A friend and I went there for lunch last Tuesday after touring the Hapsburg Exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The food we ordered was fantastic! I ordered Koupepia (lamb wrapped in grape leaves) on a bed of rice. Delicious! My companion finished off her Vegetarian Mousaka and declared it delicious. I decided to try to make Augolemono (my favorite chicken-lemon soup) for our own Easter dinner. My son is smoking a leg-of-lamb so I think the soup will be a wonderful starter for the meal. Now I just have to visit the Greek Islands to compare their dishes with these!
