In the interests of full disclosure, I should probably point out that I worked at It's Greek To Me in the late 90's. Back then, owner/chef Barbara Maniotis would start the day at an ungodly hour. By the time the servers walked in for lunch, Barbara had already prepped trays of baklava, spanakopita, dolmathes, and mousaka. All the staples of Greek cuisine were prepared fresh from scratch daily. It was a true labor of love carried out by a family that put quality and service before quick profits.
Fifteen years on, the only thing that's changed is the location. Quaint, open and airy, the "new" It's Greek To Me still serves the same recipes that earned the restaurant a devoted following. The attention to detail, top-shelf ingredients, efficient service; it's all still there. Try their calamari, lightly dusted and flash-fried. The Greek salads are a cornerstone of their success, as is their house-made savory and dessert pastries.
I admit that I might have a bit of an emotional connection to this food. It was the meal that I looked forward to most when I went away to college and the place where I'd meet my dad for a beer and catch-up. In almost twenty years, it's good to see that not much has changed.
