Molyvos, restaurant week - review

jacinthe | Feb 1, 2005 04:31 PM

Moving on. Wednesday's lunch was the restaurant week deal at Molyvos, near one of my friend's offices. I think that their restaurant week menu is the same thing they call the "quick lunch", but I'm not 100% certain on that.

For an appetizer we both got the lentil soup, which was very well done (although I prefer my lentil soup thicker, with more lentils). We also both got the same entree, the warm chicken bourekia, which reminded me of chicken brick (I think that's what it's called), which I had in Tunisia and have seen on some northern African menus. The chicken was wrapped in filo dough, with leeks, raisins, and almonds. It was a very good dish as well, although I was rather full from the soup and could only finish half of it. And there was dessert to be had! My friend got the custard, which I did not try. I got the semolina cake with figs and lemon cream, which was just amazing. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. Even though I was full, I ate the entire dish.

Service was excellent. While eating the bread that was placed on the table before the meal, I accidentally got some of the spread it came with on the tablecloth - and the waiter set down another napkin at my place, covering the (very small) mess. It was rather amusing. The restaurant was full of business-y types who were there on lunch break. I'd like to return sometime to eat off the regular menu.
