Finally! In place of the formerly beloved Pyewacket is an awesome new restaurant which will transport you to Greece the minute you walk in the door. A George Bakatsias restaurant, he looks to be thrilled, as he walks around from table to table, to bring his native cuisine to his adopted city. And he should be. It is superb. From the live greek music to the greek beers and wine on the menu and all the truly authentic dishes, you are there.
Anyone who knows Santorini has had the Santorini Fava, a wonderful hummus like dip made from yellow lentils, slathered in EVOO and served with pita. Kipos has a perfect version. Add the classic Greek salad, NO lettuce (!) and a glass of Greek white wine (A fabulous one was suggested by our waiter, Mike, and he was spot on) and you have the perfect dinner.
We also tried the Ouzo Soaked Salmon served with chilis and dill. Perfection paired with the feta on the salad. Finally, the Calamari, also suggested by Mike, was crispy, soft and tasty.
Finishing off with a perfect decaf cappuchino, too full for desert, the evening was one to repeat over and over.
The restaurant was packed but everything moved efficiently and Mike took the time to really connect with us. He had clearly taken the time to absorb the first rate training he must have received since he spoke very knowledgably and made excellent recommendations. We enjoyed his service and style. I could eat here weekly and, hey, I just might.
