Easter weekend meal specials being offered at Nammos by the Sea, the chic restaurant & nightclub at trendy Psarou beach on Mykonos. This promotional image was posted on the Nammos Facebook page today.
Noshing at Nammos: If you love lamb and happen to be going to Mykonos for Greek Easter, you might want to book a table for lunch or dinner at Nammos by the Sea, the upscale restaurant & nightclub at posh Psarou beach.
The trendy restaurant, which is a popular go-to dining and party spot for the world’s rich and famous, will be featuring some traditional Greek lamb dishes on its special lunch and dinner menus Easter weekend.
Nammos’ dinner on Holy Saturday (April 19) features magiritsa, which is a traditional lamb soup, along with the Nammos salad, lamb with potatoes and dessert. The cost is €50 per person (drinks not included).
Kokoretsi featured for Sunday lunch
For lunch on Sunday April 20, the Nammos chefs will again be serving lamb, soup and dessert, as well as kokoretsi, again for €50 per person. I wasn’t sure what kokoretsi is, so I consulted the wonderful Greek and Mediterranean food website Kalofagas.ca Greek Food and Beyond to find out.
An April 7 2010 post by Kalofagas proprietor and noted gourmet chef Peter Minakis includes several full-colour photos and a recipe, and explains that kokoretsi is “a rotisserie dish made up of skewering seasoned lamb or goat organ meat, wrapped in caul fat and then by yards of cleaned intestines.”
At Easter, he notes, “practically every Greek home will undertake to prep and serve their family their very own version of kokoretsi.”
Nammos is renowned for its food and special events, so you’ll be in for a treat if you can get to Psarou and partake in one of their Easter meals. Nammos will open for the season one week before Easter, on April 12.
