Momos Ouzaria Taverna

630 North and South Rd. University City, MO 63130 | University City | 314-863-3511

Location Description:

A fun, fashionable, fantastic Greek boîte tucked away along the western fringe of U. City, Momos offers much in the way of Greek classics (dolmades, kebabs, gyros, orzo and ouzo) and even more in the way of nouveau-Grecian fare (lima-bean salad, baked phyllo with a heavenly chocolate sauce). The food is chic yet earthy, and extremely well executed all around. Momos also boasts a truly eclectic, hand-picked wine list worth exploring, plus a house concoction that's half-sangria, half-mead and wholly delicious. A great addition to the city's restaurant scene.
