Greek Taverna in Rockville

A friend and I dined at “Greek Taverna” in Congressional Plaza the other evening. We were greeted and literally treated like queens (their words). The brothers Nick and Costas greeted and served us with warmth and humor. The interior was nice, especially the cobalt blue glasses.

We started with a plate of tzatziki and pita. The pita was warm and soft and the tzatziki had a nice consistency thanks to the still shredded cucumbers (nice change from the usual pulverized stuff) and the flavor was good to. We both ended up ordering spanakopita platter. OMG was it so good!!! You could actually taste the spinach and feta. It was a large chunk appx 3” thick with a wonderful flaky phyllo top. It was not the usual wimpy triangle of dough with a smear of green that is served in other establishments. I had a couple of bites of rice and beans that accompanied the dish and they were ok.

The down side was that some of the items were not made in-house. For example the salad that came with the entrée was right out of a bag. And the bread, more like a sliced roll, in the basket needed help too.

The brothers came by repeatedly to check on us and ended up comping us a dessert. But we were so full that we were unable to finish it.

We thoroughly enjoyed the service and the food that was made in-house. I hope they do well but there is lots of competition in the neighborhood.
