To our dear and loyal TAXIM customers.
Greek Easter Πάσχα is one week away, and TAXIM will continue its annual tradition of charcoal roasting whole lambs. We will be providing the whole Easter meal for pre-order and pick up or delivery for this coming Sunday, April 19.
The Greek Easter meal will include the traditional mahlepi scented tsoureki bread, red eggs, mayiritsa soup (lamb offal soup), arugula salad, house-made phyllo leek pies (prassopita), and hefty portions of charcoal roasted lamb served with potatoes and cracked wheat, tzatziki, house-made pita and bread, and loukoumades (mastic-flavored fried dumplings) for dessert. The $150 menu serves two people. Pre-orders are required for this special menu.
We are still waiting to hear from the state of Illinois when we will be allowed to reopen for in-house dining and our open air rooftop. Hopefully soon! In the meantime, stay safe and loving.
