This is where to find excellent home-style Greek cooking at unbeatable prices. Everything tastes fundamentally right and good, from the perfectly tender braised and grilled octopus to those moist and smoky lamb chops—the aromas alone guarantee that you will dine well here. Start with a superb spanakopita that balances flaky phyllo with just the right amount of chopped spinach, dotted with onion and feta. Saganaki entices with salty and springy Greek cheese wrapped in pastry that manages to stay crisp beneath a rich drenching of honey and sesame seeds.
The tavern-like space feels attractively dark, cozy, fills up quickly and doesn’t take reservations, so expect a wait. The servers and staff are a stylish and laid-back mirror image of the neighborhood.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
