We were so eager to try out Petra as soon as we'd heard they had opened, and we were not disappointed!! Went there Saturday evening and sat on the beautiful terrace overlooking the pond to enjoy the setting sun over some truly fabulous. cloud-like pita bread. Our grilled octopus and taramosalata starters were exceptional (the octopus is a personal favorite and the execution was wonderful), as were our main courses, the moussaka and the whole red snapper. We also took a flyer and ordered some totally un-pronounceable item on the menu for dessert in addition to the baklava and it was outstanding! kind of like a custard filled egg roll pastry, but I had custard and egg rolls and this was amazing. I almost always hate baklava because it's heavy or overly drenched in honey, but this was perfect. The service was charming, Mandy was an attentive delight, and her colleagues were very helpful as well. I love that it's BYOB, but given how delicious everything was, I look forward to their receiving their liquor license just to see what wines they get in! Absolutely our new favorite local restaurant in Roxbury, there simply isn't anything up to this standard; it's a joy to see someone making such excellent use of ingredients. Beautiful job and we will be back many many times.
