Lauren had a Groupon for Melanthios, Greek Char House, in easy walking distance from her new apartment. This means we ate $40. worth of fantastic food for $20. I can tell you that the food and service were superb every inch of the way.
Below you see our waiter lighting a flaming cheese for the people at the next table!
In addition to lighting the cheese, the waiter yells out OOPAH! OOPAH! The flame and the loud yelling out are just wonderful. I could watch and listen forever.
So many restaurants in Chicago have outdoor seating, but all the outside tables were already taken.
The last photo is of my waiter, James, and me.
Melanthios in Chicago has the best service in the world. I discovered that waiters are now called servers, and James is the best server of all!
We'll be back one of these days It would be lovely to meet you here!
