Anatolian Kitchen

If you love Mediterranean food but tire of the usual gyros, Greek salads and baklavas, then Anatolian Kitchen is the place for you. The owner is originally from Turkey, and the restaurant offers popular picks like dolmas and falafel as well as some rare dishes you may not have tried yet. "Alexander's Favorite," which may soon become your favorite too, is a type of Turkish iskender kebab, with slices of ground lamb and beef with tomato sauce, melted butter and yogurt served over bread. The whole sea bass is also a popular dish that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Or choose from their salads, combo plates, and pasta dishes including moussaka and the famous manti, a Turkish take on ravioli.

Gyros Gyros

Gyros Gyros specializes in Greek and Mediterranean cuisine with hints of Turkish influence. The restaurant derives its name from gyros, which is a roasted meat dish, prepared on a vertical spit in Greek cuisine. The appetizers include Eggplant Salad, a blend of parsley, herbs and olive oil, Tabouleh soaked in olive oil and lemon juice, and Sautéed Green Beans. The salad selection offers Lamb & Beef Gyros Salad, Chicken Gyros Salad, Mediterranean Seafood Salad and Greek Salad. Go on to savor Grilled Fish Plate, Shish Kebab, Falafel Wrap, Mousaka or Vegetarian Combo. For dessert, do not miss the rice pudding or the Baklava, bathed in pistachio nuts and honey. A piping hot cup of Turkish Coffee complements the food perfectly.

Evvia Estiatorio

This wildly popular eatery serves up elegant Greek cuisine in a tidy storefront with linen-topped tables, stone hearth, artisanal pottery and an open kitchen that is warm and inviting. Locals love the daily fish specials, assertively seasoned with lemon, olive oil and bay leaves in perfect proportions. Other must-tries at Evvia Estiatorio include the succulent dishes of braised lamb or beef surrounded by saffron rice, the luscious spanikopita bursting with spinach and feta, and the hearty Moussaka with its rich layers of slow-cooked beef and cheese. For dessert, there is flaky and sweet baklava. The service is quick and friendly.
