eXo Greek Mediterranean Restaurant Review

 In the mood for some good, no some great Greek Mediterranean food? Then look no further than eXo Greek Mediterranean Restaurant nestled in a quaint Whitestone New York neighborhood.  eXo is a very young restaurant, they first opened their doors in August of 2010 and they have been busy ever since.  I first experienced a small sampling of what eXo had to offer at the Queens A Taste of the World back in May.  The restaurant boasts of traditional Greek recipes but with a flare.

In my correspondence with Chef Constantine Kalandranis, affectionately known as Chef Costa,I was instructed to come hungry, my response?  I promised to wear my eating pants.  With all the food we were treated to I should have worn my eating overalls. 

 We kicked off the tasting with fresh pita (which they make themselves) and all five spreads which included spicy feta, eggplant, skordalia, hummus, and tsatziki. From the mild to the spicy this appetizer was a gateway to the other flavors we were about to experience. Soon to follow was a traditional horitatiki tomato salad, kefalotiri cheese stuffed meatballs, hand cut potato chips, and a souvlakia trio of chicken, steak, and pork skewers.  Told you I needed to put on my eating overalls. 

Fresh Pita and all five spreads.

 Not much of a carnivore? don’t worry eXo has a meal for that. With ingredients such as capers, white wine, and fresh cut herbs the Sautéed Tiger Shrimp, the Pan Seared King Salmon, and the Steamed mussels Kaliopi are all to die for.

 Although I was stuffed I had to experience eXo’s dessert, if the meal was that good I had to push towards the dessert (don’t judge me.)  I indulged on warm rizogalo (rice pudding), my favorite yogurt and greek honey syrup, and galaktoboureko.

 I defiantly plan on revisiting eXo restaurant many times in the future and you should to.  My only warning to you…wear your eating pants.
