    All the Greek goodness, guilt-free. Try the Tzatziki and Fasolatha.   

    Pastaweesy

    As the name suggests, the menu is mainly pasta-based. A good option for a work-lunch without meat.

    Left Bank

    Dine by the Nile and leave the fish in there where they belong. The sun-dried tomato & mozzarella Italian-style pizza looks tastier anyway.

    Jacket Potato

    Maison Thomas
