Heavenly Greek

We vacation in the Lake Tahoe area about once a year. Last year we dined with friends at a restaurant called Artemis in South Lake Tahoe. We thought the food was great but our friend (the husband) didn't. This year we ended up eating there twice, once for a late lunch and once for dinner. Our feelings about their food were reinforced. The sampler plate contained: Red pepper hummus (OK), Baba Ghanouj (outstanding), good grape leaves, very good felafel and a tasty chunky tzatziki. Their gyros is flavorful and makes a great sandwich, or is available as a plate with salad (good). Their menu is extensive with souvlakia, avgolemono, a spicy, vegan lentil soup and some interesting non-greek additions like the venison burger. I wish that we could have eaten there every day so that I could work my way through their menu. Everything is made fresh every day. Well worth the trip and the prices are very reasonable.
