Was recommended by friends - they were definitely right! Elias takes great pride in his eatery and it shows - let him guide you thru the wine and food offerings and you will not be disappointed. Already have reservations for next Friday night - we will be regulars.

We love this place. We go there for lunch once a week. Every meal is so fresh and delicious. I always get the traditional Greek salad with the most tender chicken. The dressings are all homemade with very unique tasting olive oil and vinegars. My friends always get the sandwiches and love them. They serve delicious wines by the glass. And the desserts are out of this world.

If you grew up in a Greek, Italian, or Spanish family that cooked food from “back home” then this place will remind you of those days gone by. If you’re new to those foods or are just looking for a place to try some of the best Southern European ingredients you can find then this is the first and last place you need to try.
We stopped in on a date night, and we were back two nights later with two other couples because it would be a shame to not share this eatery with everyone we can.
Elias is very friendly, patient, and accommodating. He will take time to explain his process and the personally selected foods that he offers in his unassuming, quaint, and contemporary bistro-slash-market. They even have one TV with travelogue images of Greece, and another TV with cooking shows that kept our food frenzy alight.
Plan at least two hours, and we highly recommend simply putting yourself in Elias’s hands and letting him serve you. Every single ingredient is world class and will delight you with authenticity.
I simply can’t say enough about this place and its wonderful owner. You’ll love it so much that you can come back and copy-paste this review just to make it easy. 🙂
