High ceilings, Moroccan-styled pendant lighting, huge mirrors, exposed brick and painted wood chairs create a cool and hip atmosphere to enjoy regional Greek cuisine. There is a nice balance here of hearty and lighter fare. If you're a fan of Greek food AND want to dine in a trendier neighborhood, come here versus Greek Town.

The dinner menu is broken up into sections: Cold Small Plates, Small Hot Plates, and Mains. It's a big menu. Highlights from the small plate menu include heirloom tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, garden peppers and feta salad; baby arugula, hummus, roasted beats with greens; sautéed wild watercress and Swiss chard, egg-lemon soup, and wood grilled octopus with fennel. Main dishes include lamb chops, braised pork shoulder, seafood soup with sunchokes, prawns, and mussels, oven-roasted Amish half chicken and spit-roasted sea bream with red cabbage salad.

Open nightly for dinner starting at 5:30p, 5p on Sundays.
