In celebration of the history, culture, and foods of Greece, we invite you to lunch at Our Mom Eugenia in Great Falls. The restaurant was named by the chef’s sons in honor of their mother, Eugenia Hobson, who was born on the island of Zakynthos in the Ionian Sea in western Greece. She learned the secrets of Greek cuisine from her grandmother. Eugenia has worked at the Mykonos Grill in Rockville, the Athenian Plaka in Bethesda, and most recently at Nostos restaurant in Tysons Corner. Tom Sietsema of the Washington Post has given her dishes glowing reviews. Our Grecian lunch includes salad, appetizers, entrée, desserts, and beverage. Appetizers served family style include spanakopita, tzatziki spread and fava spread with pita, and kolokithokeftedes (zucchini fritter ball with feta). Desserts, served family style, include orange cake and donut puffs with honey. Soft drinks, coffee and hot and cold tea are included. Wine, beer, and liquor are on a cash bar basis. Please indicate your choice of one of the following five entrées when you register: salmon filet with spanakorizo; grilled breast of chicken with oven roasted potatoes and Greek-style string beans; moussaka; roasted leg of lamb with oven roasted potatoes and string beans; or vegetarian platter with spinach spanakopita, large northern beans in tomato sauce, baked beets, and imam baildi or baby eggplant with tomato, pine nuts, raisins, and feta. Parking is limited as Eugenia’s is in a small mall at the corner of Route 7 and Georgetown Pike (rt. 193). To encourage carpooling we will supply you with a list of those attending. The restaurant is handicap accessible. The fee of $40, payable to OLLI at the time of registration, includes food, coffee or tea, and tip. Registration for this event is on a first-come, first-served basis.
