A taste of Greece in Porto-Fino September 23, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Greek Taste World.

The taste may not exactly conjure the wine-dark Mediterranean Sea shimmering beneath a brilliant blue Greek sky, but it’ll do for a great lunch.

If you haven’t yet, you need to try Porto-Fino’s Greek salad, a generous-sized concoction of three kinds of lettuce (iceberg, romaine and green-leaf), thick sticks of feta cheese, Kalamata olives, pepperoncini, green peppers, Bermuda onions, thick wedges of tomatoes and cucumbers, all sprinkled with oregano and fresh parsley.

And, of course, the homemade dressing, perfected by owner George Velitskakis, 30, and his father, who opened the small family restaurant 22 years ago.

Oh, yes, and it comes with four slices of crispy garlic bread, essential for soaking up the tangy dressing. This could be the only meal you’ll need for the day.

About 60 percent of the salads sold at the restaurant are the Greek salads, Velitskakis said. Porto-Fino’s is at 730 Ferry Cut-Off. Call 322-3330.
