The interior is pleasant but fairly bare-bones, the Greek radio piped in adding as much atmosphere as the Greek frieze reproduction on one wall. The menu is large, both in physical size and scope. Start with a little plate of warm pita triangles and kalamata olives, then head toward the lesser-known items: Yes, the Greek salad is good, but branch out and try the prasini, a chiffonade of romaine flecked with dill, scallion and fluffs of very good feta, the whole thing with a lemon-tangy dressing. Housemade avgolemono reads like Grandma's work, and every bit as homey is an order of yemista, one roasted stuffed pepper and one tomato, each filled with white rice and ground beef in equal measure, a bit of tomato and a strong hand with the dried mint lending distinction. The yemista comes, as many dishes do, with wide planks of lemon-kissed and oregano-flecked roasted/braised potato.
