Dutch and Greek Delights

DCDC met today for a very special outing. We met at the Phillips Collection and toured the Van Gogh Reflections exhibit. Memorable!

Then we walked over to Mourayo's Greek restaurant on Connecticut Avenue. "Mourayo" is Greek for 'safe harbor where fishermen moor their boats.' We had a very delicious lunch. Jodi took charge of the selections (she is superb at this). She ordered four appetizers and one salad - all equally impressive.

Salata Gaea - fresh beet salad with apples, walnuts, and yogurt

Manouri stin Shara -Manouri cheese grilled with a cranberry coulis sauce, garnished with spinach

Agria Manitaria - Oyster mushroom ragout with tomatoes and feta

Kypriako Haloumi me Sousami - Sesame crusted Cypriot haloumi cheese

Melitzanosalata - Roasted eggplant, garlic, tomatoes, feta, olive oil, and vinegar

(It should be noted that DCDC had dined at this restaurant several years ago. Check out my blog post for November 16, 2007.)
