    It's got 3 locations in westchester. Not sure if it's considered a chain. The menu looks good though.


    They've got meat stuffed eggplant. Papoutsaki. @zhukov



    They've got a couple of dishes with bechamel. @Chriza

    I'm either gonna get the grilled vegetables or the stewed eggplant and zucchini. I might also get an appetizer of fried zucchini. or maybe a lamb stick. Yeah that's it. A lamb stick to go with my veggies. :lunch:

    Many Greek and Middle Eastern dishes are prepared with olive oil, which is one of the better choices of oil but can add lots of calories. Some favorite ingredients like feta cheese and olives are high in sodium.

    Tips:

    • Ask for dishes to be prepared with less oil and served with high-sodium foods on the side.
    • Ask for salad dressing and sauces on the side.
    • Phyllo pastry dishes are usually high in butter, so skip them.
    • Most Greek desserts are high in fat and sugar. If you want to splurge, split one with a friend.

    I'm not a fan of feta cheese or olives but I do like my olive oil. Lots of good fats.

    And like I said, I'm going with either grilled or stewed vegetables and maybe a lamb stick. Maybe.

    So here is my visit to the Greek Place at Ridge Hill. The staff at the Greek place seemed miserable. I tipped 20 bucks for an 85 dollar meal.
