Estia Greek Taverna Radnor - InteriorOn Sunday, April 12, 2015, from 2:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., all three Estia locations – Philadelphia, PA; Radnor, PA; and Marlton, NJ – will celebrate Greek Easter with a traditional feast. All guests will enjoy four courses of hearty Greek fare; and all dishes will also be available à la carte in addition to the restaurants’ expansive menu of modern-classic Greek cuisine.

“Traditionally, Greek Easter is celebrated at 12:00 midnight on Easter Sunday; then, the entire family comes together for a midday feast to celebrate the end of the fasting of Lent,” notes co-owner Pete Pashalis. “Whether our guests are observant or not, this rustic meal is a once-a-year treat that is not to be missed, and a terrific opportunity to gather family and friends around the table on a beautiful spring Sunday.”

The Greek Easter menu will include: a choice of soup, Mayeritsa, traditional Greek Easter soup of lamb seasoned with scallions, dill, parsley, spinach and rice, or Avgolemeno, egg and lemon soup with rice; Marouli Salata, chopped romaine lettuce salad with dill and scallions dressed with Latholemeno; Roasted Lamb seasoned with oregano, lemon, pepper and garlic served over Greek-style oven-roasted potatoes; and two desserts, Koulourakia, Greek cookies with seasame seeds, and Galactobourico, semolina custard wrapped in homemade phyllo dough.

Estia Greek Tavernas in Radnor and Marlton share an airy, transportive feel that leaves guests feeling as if they had ventured to a Greek Island. Each dish on the menu is prepared with an emphasis on the highest quality seafood, including flying in the freshest fish from the Mediterranean – a family tradition since the original Estia in Center City, Philadelphia, debuted more than seven years ago. Estia has long been a favorite among city dwellers and out-of-towners looking for a romantic date spot or a place to dine before or after the theater.
