SAY YASSOU TO THE GREEK CLUB | The Gourmand & Gourmet


From piles of honey puffs at Paniyiri to plates of spanakopita at the Odyssey Taverna, everyone likes to geek out on Greek.  A Brisbane icon since 1975, The Greek Club is perfect whether you’re planning end of year celebrations, a decadent function or family catch up – the team make you feel like you’re a part of their big family; we’re pretty souvlaki to have them! Get your Mediterranean fix at the Taverna, with classic dishes including calamari tiyanito, pita breads, dips and dolmades. Looking for something special to impress the fam? Smash your way through the three course Greek banquet or mixed grill with chicken souvlaki, lamb cutlets, loukanika and pita bread. Feeling lunchtime hangry? They can be your gyro baby, with lunch specials under $20 Monday-Friday. Skanikopi-that! For a spring fling, we can’t resist zorba-ing our way to an afternoon with the Greek Club’s Meze Bliss Spring Special. A deal worth smashing plates for, indulge in the refreshing Paradiso Bliss cocktail, paired the chef’s selection of spanakopita, chicken souvlakia and crunchy eggplant and feta balls for just $19pp. Meze specials not enough to get you up and dancing? Strap on your boogie shoes and get toe-tapping to live music every Friday and Saturday nights, plus Sunday afternoons at the Odyssey Taverna. We love a makeover, and with big things planned for renovations taking place in 2018, there’s never been a better time to get into The Greek Club and get your fix before they close temporarily! Olive you glad they’re still open? So feast on Greek food, knock back some ouzo and say opa! Words by Emma Callaghan
