Foursquare Tips

  • Dont come hungry for what Isabella calls touristy dishes. Get the octopus: Smoky, tender tentacle atop a swipe of yogurt tarted up w/ green harissa. The crackle comes from quick-fried amaranth.
  • Starting 8/28: Happy hour 5 to 7 pm every weekday, w/ $5 draft beers, $6 draft wines and $7 draft lemonade cocktails. Snacks $5 each: Greek fries or plates of spanakopita and dolmades are good bets.
  • My new favorite place!
  • Apple Baklava. Amazing.
  • The bread is amazing.
  • The watermelon salad is perfectly spicy and sweet. Also try the grilled octopus.
  • Apple Baklava. Amazing.
  • Ali makes great drinks. Loved the Keebler Elf and the Turkish Fabio was refreshing without being too sweet. Try the spicy watermelon and the suckling pig. The lamb was too fatty for my taste.
  • Try the lamb- it was great!
  • Hollywood cocktail
  • Don't forget to order an array of grilled meats, we like the beef souvlaki, pork, and tender lamb!
  • You must order the stellar Ora King Salmon kebab with favosalata, capers, herb salad, & cucumbers.
  • The Spanakopita here is on another level: crispy phyllo wrapped around spinach & feta
  • Start your meal off with a sampling of three spreads - we liked the Revithosalata, Melitzanosalata, and Taramosalata.
  • WiFi = Parosgreece
  • If you come here with a reservation you are treated like a walk in. Hostesses need much more training
  • Get the goat!
  • The food...amazing
  • They have some kind of lead bartender w/leather apron. He walked by me w/nothing in front of me 4 times never once asking if I needed a drink or my check. It was the check. 15 minutes. Leadership.
  • Loved the suckling pig and the cauliflower
