The Dish
Come here for everything from gyros to souvlaki and beyond, including daily specials of fabulous-smelling lamb chops. Most everything is homemade, including the versions of moussaka and pasticcio, both served with a side Greek salad.

When you’re in the mood for something different yet Greek, try the stuffed tomatoes. An order is two good-sized tomatoes carefully scooped out and filled with a ground beef/rice mixture (more beef than rice). It’s a meal completed by a couple of hunks of lemon-herb potatoes and a small attractive Greek salad of romaine, chopped tomatoes, tiny pitted Greek olives and cubed feta dressed in an herb-infused Greek vinaigrette. You can opt for whole fresh green peppers stuffed with the same mixture if you like, for the same price as the tomatoes. Filling? You bet.

But save room for desserts made on premises. Baklava is rich and syrupy, custard-filled phyllo pastry called galaktobouriko is excellent, and there’s rich Greek yogurt served with drizzles of honey. This is what yogurt is really supposed to taste like.
