Chef Pano I. Karatassos opened Lamb Shack last week offering a Greek menu for lunch delivery, according to a press release.
Chef Pano created the new concept in response to the trend for increased takeout during COVID-19 as well as to use the kitchen in his upscale Greek dining restaurant to deliver fast, quality lunchtime Greek eats since Kyma only serves dinner.
“Before the pandemic, we didn’t really do to-go style food at Kyma, since we pride ourselves not only on freshness but beautiful presentation and that’s hard to do with takeout,” Karatassos, founder and executive chef at Kyma as well as Executive Chef of Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, said in the release. “Since my lamb pie gained fame after my win on Beat Bobby Flay I’ve been contemplating how to bring Kyma’s modern Greek dishes to the masses in a more casual way. Lamb Shack is the perfect vehicle to offer delicious, customizable salads and pitas and other authentic, healthy Greek fare for lunch takeout. And the ghost kitchen model creates another business opportunity for the staff and the restaurant — a positive for everyone on the team.”
The Lamb Shack menu offers protein options including lamb, pork, and chicken paired with pita or a salad, and a spread (roasted red pepper and feta, kalamata olive, grilled eggplant, and Greek yogurt, hummus, or tzatziki) and top with any or all of the following garnishes: arugula, Roma tomatoes, crumbled feta, marinated red onions, and French fries.
In addition to pitas and salads, Lamb Shack offers Chef Pano’s (Beat Bobby Flay) lamb pie, grilled octopus, spanakopita, grape leaves, and even Chef Pano’s Greek donuts made daily with crushed walnuts and wild-thyme honey from the Chef Pano specialty Greek product line.
Lamb Shack is available for delivery via Uber Eats, DoorDash, and mylambshack.com, and curbside pickup at Kyma directly.
