Breaking News: I Moved to Mykonos and Opened a Restaurant!

December 10, 2012

We thought about this long and hard. Snow. Cold. Who needs it? Why not enjoy our Medicare years on the beaches of Greece. Mediterranean diet. Laid-back lifestyle. Okay, so Greece is a political and financial disaster, but hey, who needs money when you have tzatziki, melitzanosalata, dolmades, and spanakopita??

[Ed. Note: WordPress is having photo sizing problems today. When I inserted the three below as I normally would, they appear gargantuan, spread across the entire page so I have made the three pix a gallery. Click each one to enlarge for that 100% Yummy Factor!)

Alas, we have not moved! I am still in Bedford, staring at the pea soup fog but dreaming of cliffs on Santorini or the perfect privacy on Oinousses.

The EOS Restaurant pictured at the top does exist, not on Santorini but merely a hop skip and jump away in Stamford, CT. Great food. No, make that excellent food, and a true test for any cuisine, we were the only non-Greeks in the place. If you live anywhere nearby, GO. Parking can be a problem but when we went, the Greek Gods must have been shining down on us as there was a two-hour meter right across the street from the place!

    Santorini is stunning, but Anafi to the Southwest even more so, well at least it was in the idyllic summer of 2001, before the world’s political poo hit the spinning blades.

    When you were there, did you visit the ruins of Akrotiri?

    Alack, LA: I haven’t been to Santorini or Anafi. Santa seems to keep ignoring this request. Of course, it could have something to do with the fact that there was no Kubota or Deere 4×4 under the tree last year. Not that Santa holds a grudge…..Just saying :-)

    Robin at 11:37: Best pun I’ve heard this year, hands down!

    Betty, just a little farther east of Shippan Point! :-)

    I fell in love with octopus in Spain – I’m coming to try EOS’s octopus. Is it wonderful? What a shame it’s right across the country from me.
