My first thought upon hearing the word “Greek” is an awful flashback to the days of pledging my sorority, an endless schedule of sleepless nights, rituals I’m sworn to secrecy for forever, and my worst fear, being around a bunch of 20-something year old women 24/7. It’s like an issue of Cosmopolitan come to horrifying life. These days though, it gives me the warm feels thinking about Greece’s unique cuisine and all the wonderful things that can fill my belly, without having to have my fat circled as a consequence (but you didn’t hear that ritual from me). But I digress. What I truly want to talk about in this blog is Boca Raton’s newest restaurant, Oliv Pit, because they are bringing the flavor that Boca Raton has so badly been craving.
Here’s the thing – when it comes to ordering food, you should always go big or go home (this philosophy also works with diamonds in case any eligible bachelors are wondering). That’s why Oliv Pit offers seafood and meat platters that will force you to re-evaluate how much your stomach can fit. The Seafood Platter comes with calamari, salmon, prawns
and octopus, and the Mix Grill Platter boasts Beefteki, Gyro meat and your choice of skewers (beef, chicken, pork, or veggie). It’s accompanied by a green salad, pita, tzatziki, and tomato paprika sauce. You can order the platter for 2 or for 4, but really, who pays attention to serving sizes? I mean a typical pizza is meant to serve 4 but I have certainly polished one of those off in one sitting. (Side note, if you’re not a rabid beast like me, you can always take the leftovers home. Reliving this meal is something I would definitely recommend.)
