Midtown Village’s favorite modern Greek restaurant and bar, Opa, offers up a special night of perfect pita traditions, Tuesday, May 15.

Hosted by Chrisoula Tsiouris, mother of the resto’s brother/sister team, the dinner dishes up an array of pita plates using the family’s very own passed-down recipe.

The savory spread includes a choice of three pitas from a selection of lamb, chicken, cheese, spinach, leek and mac and cheese, as well as salad and a sweet custard pita for dessert.

Along with the evening’s fare, the Tsiouris family will share pita making secrets with their guests, specifically focusing on the art and technique of their heirloom recipe.
