OK, certainly one of the absolute best. I will try to contain myself here, after last nights spectacular dinner, but here goes:
Emilitsa's atmosphere is, as always, simply sublime.
Emilitsa's service was, as always, outstanding. Professional, friendly, and attentive (but never hovering).
Emilitsa's complimentary bean dip was, as always, perfect.
Emilitsa's smoked eggplant appetizer was divine (NOT burnt, like the previously reviewer misguidedly suggested).
Emilitsa's Souvlaki - which we have had countless times, including last night - is, always, beyond reproach.
Emilitsa's lamb was, is, and always will be (are you all listening?) the best lamb this jaded and food-crazed New York Jew (ethnicity aside) has ever had. Period! I sucked last night's lamb down to the very bones. Slightly embarassing you say for such an upscale - but never pretentious - restaurant you say? You bet it is, BUT it's also the absolute most delicious, tender, and flavorful lamb I've EVER had (And this boy has had plenty of lamb over 50+ years). No question about it.
The ONLY thing better than last night's dinner will be the NEXT TIME WE COME TO EMILITSA.
I feel sorry if you feel differently. For you.
