Dinner on the patio: Vaskouzina in Roswell


Dinner on Vaskouzina's patio on a sunny Spring day was everything I needed and more! First I tried the Alpharetta Location and the food was so delicious I had to try the Roswell location next. Vaskouzina has true Greek cooking with a modern flair. As soon as you walk in it feels like you are dining with family. The patio has an open concept. Vaskouzina is the perfect place this Spring and Summer for a lunch date, to take your out-of-town friends, and even just to enjoy time alone with a glass of wine and fresh air! What I enjoyed:

Chef's Special - Red Snapper. Whole fish is prepared over chargrill and basted with Greek olive oil, lemon, and oregano This fish is so flavorful, flaky and juicy. I choose the option to have it deboned tableside. What a presentation!

Greek Burger - Feta Cheese or Tirokafteri . Ground beef patty, lettuce, tomato and onions, grilled brioche bun

The Tirokafteri is a spicy cream spread that elevates the burger to a whole, other level!

Fried Calamari - fried & seasoned, lemon aioli, lemon wedges. I love that a few pieces are stacked atop the lemon wedge!

Saganaki - Flaming cheese, pita points. The cheese is on fire literally. It is set on flame before your eyes and drizzled with fresh lemon juice. Video worthy!

Loukoumades - Honey Drizzled Puffs, Sprinkled with Cinnamon & Chopped Walnuts. Tastes like beignets - but better! Reminded me of back home in Louisiana.

Spooned Sweets - Sour Cherry. Traditional Sweet Preserves with Syrup. Try a little with Loukoumades you won't regret it. I also think it would be good to spread on biscuits or spooned into ice cream or Greek Yogurt.

Assorted Olives/ I enjoyed the garlic and pepper pieces mixed throughout. Yum!

Americana Greek - romaine, tomato, cucumber, feta,onion, kalamata olives, oregano, pepperoncini, Greek vinaigrette/ Very fresh! The pepperoncini definitely kicks it up a notch!
