I was first introduced to tzatziki sauce as a very young child, with the opening in my neighborhood of a new restaurant, The Athenian Room. This small cozy place specialized in savory grilled Greek chicken, marinated skirt steaks and kabobs, wide steak fries soaked in a red wine vinaigrette, salads with slabs of salty feta on top, and gyros. It quickly became a family staple, and to this day. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Heat a large cast-iron griddle or grill pan until very hot.
