Uptown Parthenon Menu Image

The menu doesn’t pretend to be the world’s most authentic — you can order a hamburger or a slab of ribs, wing dings or chicken tenders — but it does include some unusual dishes, such as baby octopus in a wine sauce. Reganato, loin of lamb baked in wine, olive oil and oregano, is another specialty. The best-seller is lamb shank simmered in a tomato sauce. It is falling-off-the-bone tender without a trace of fat, and it’s offered with several different sides — roasted potatoes, rice pilaf, pasta, or just vegetables.
