TDP Dinner: Sign Up For A Four-Course Meal At New Greek Restaurant Thalassa
Goa’s popular Greek restaurant Thalassa was launched in Khar on Thursday, November 10. Their move to Mumbai has been imminent ever since their successful run as a pop-up restaurant at the now-shuttered Mahalaxmi outpost of Olive Bar and Kitchen, from September 2013 until July 2014.
In Goa, where it was established in 2006, Thalassa occupies an enviable cliffside spot. In Mumbai, it has taken up residence in Hotel Shubhangan, where it replaced Yellow Bar All Day. The 7,200 square restaurant is made up of a basement lounge and indoor and outdoor dining areas that are fashioned after a Santorini courtyard, with white walls, white and blue furniture and a canopy of bougainvillea.
The food and drinks menus are almost the same across the two outposts of the taverna. Highlights of the Greek comfort food menu include feta saganaki (fried feta); tiro-kaf-teri (spicy feta dip); chicken souvlaki; horiatiki (Greek salad with tomato, cucumber, olive, onion and feta); beef gyros; moussaka; spanakorizo (spinach and rice cooked with olive and feta); chocolate baklava; and semifreddo. The cocktail menu features Corfu Sunset (vodka, guava juice and Tabasco); Mykonos Blue (Bacardi, passion fruit, pineapple juice and blue curaçao); and Gates of Olympia (whisky, basil leaves and pineapple juice).
Tables we hear are already booked out for the next few days but 15 readers of our site can sign up for a four-course meal with Thalassa founder Mariketty Grana and The Daily Pao team on Tuesday, November 15 at 8pm. The menu curated by Grana will feature some of her signature dishes mentioned above.
