Taverna Nikos Blogging: New and Noteworthy

Chef Georgios Kastanias , at Taverna Nikos, has been trying out new recipes as potential candidates for the fall menu. Thursday night, he made a goat cheese appetizer for me to try. It had four pieces of bruschetta, topped with fried balls of goat cheese, with small pieces of goat cheese on top. It was served with a tomato and calamata olive sauce. It was definitely very good and filling, too.
He's also just introduced an impressive new dessert. It's a banana wrapped in phyllo pastry and then drizzled with caramel. I think there's also some cheese inside, but I'm not positive. It is served hot, so it's good to cut it open and let it cool a bit before quickly chomping on a bite,. The plate was drizzled with chocolate, which added just a little chocolate flavor. I liked this dessert a lot and will be eager to order it again.
