This is a brand new joint. The building has housed 2 other restaurants in the past but this fellow went all out on decorating the place inside and out. He did a splendid job on the decor and it appears his food will be as lovely.
When you eat Greek you need some flaming cheese. And of course what is cheese without wine.
This was such an excellent start to our lunch. I can not think of a better cheese course that I have had. Another plate with some olives thrown in would have made me a meal.
Pat was finally able to get his fave since they use a minimal amount of onion. I usually default for Dolmades but I wanted something more substantial; so I went for moussaka
This joint has me hooked. Their version of Moussaka was great. They also have a good selection of seafood dishes. That is not too common around here.
Even if you know nothing of Greek food this place should still be added to your list. Good cooking is Universal and this joint puts out some good food.
Well we discovered this place last week. It is in a strip mall at the corner of 56th and Post Road. It is a quiet and unassuming place. The decor is pretty generic but it does have an interesting wall of various reclaimed planks.
As for the food it bills itself as a Family restaurant so it has a rather extensive menu. It serves breakfast all day since it closes at 4 PM. It also offers grits. Something I enjoy seeing; although the service cutoff for grits is 11 AM.
Pat was leaning towards lunch and I was feeling an urge for pancakes. That is the nice thing about joints like this. I think they even have a hamburger steak breakfast platter. I guess that could be a fusion Hoosier style.
As I said I had a “hankering” for pancakes. Also I wouldn’t mind a bit of sausage and bacon. So I got both. Pigs in a Blanket and a side of bacon.
These crazy little things were great. I have never had them before. The pancakes were outstanding. Light and fluffy and the savory bite of sausage made them that much better. I really could have eaten more.
Overall our meal was very nice. However I think they need a “hook”. Something unique to set them apart from other joints similar to theirs. Cafe Audrey is close by and they are a tough act to compete with. However I think that area is big enough to support 2 such joints. As for prices our total for food was about $20. Which is about standard for this type of food.
