NEW YORK – On Sunday, April 24, Executive Chef Nicholas Poulmentis of Marathi, 200 Church Street in Manhattan, will create a traditional family feast for Easter Greek Brunch that will be served from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Following Greek tradition, Marathi will roast a whole lamb on a spit outdoors between Church Street and Duane Street in Tribeca.
The special $85 prix-fixe menu includes Magiritsa, the hearty traditional soup made with the entrails of lamb, followed by three types of slow-roasted meats on a spit; Kokoretsi, the traditional whole lamb served with baked lemon potatoes and a Greek yogurt and mint sauce; Kontosouvli, an extra-large pork souvlaki with Greek fries and a Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce, and Baby Lamb served with Brussels sprouts and a smoked Greek yogurt poblano sauce. Finally, what is a feast without dessert? The final dish, Bougatsa, is a traditional Easter custard tart wrapped in golden crispy phyllo pastry.
Since spring has finally arrived, guests can take advantage of the impressive outdoor Marathi terrace and choose between the five “cabins” overlooking Church Street, which can comfortably accommodate six people each and can also be connected to accommodate larger groups, or their outdoor curbside seating facing Duane Street. The two bright indoor dining areas are, of course, another attractive option.
