Beyond the typical dips and Greek salad: ISO somewhat less common vegetarian Greek dishes

prima | Feb 3, 2011 09:51 AM

Interested in moderately priced Greek restos, with mains that are less than $30, so no recs for Milos, please ;-)

Kouzina has quite a few veggie dishes on their menu (incl kolokithokeftedes), but the prices aren't listed on the website, apart from the $25 prix fixe offered Sun-Thu. How expensive are most dishes?

Right now, Snack Taverna, Dafni & Pylos are at the top of my list.

The horta boureki at Snack Taverna (on the lunch menu), the hortopita and kolokithokeftedes at Dafni, and the artichoke moussaka at Pylos look interesting to me. Has anyone tried these dishes and liked them? http://www.dafnitaverna.com/lunch.html

Which veggie dishes is Kefi doing well these days?

I realize Ethos is a safe bet for fish, and a popular pick for Greek. Which vegetarian dishes do you recommend the most? How is their imam?

Looked at the menus at Kellari's Taverna, Avra, Kellari's Parea and Peryali, but they seemed more focused on the meat/seafood, and fairly typical. Which veggie dishes would you recommend?

I'm especially interested in recs for different veggie pitas (prasopita, etc), fava (the spread, not the bean), boureki, ntomatokeftedes, tyrokeftedes, kolokithokeftedes (zucchini fritters), imam & dolmades, but would love to hear about other Greek veggie dishes you'd recommend.

Also, which restaurant serves your favourite tyropita and spanakopita in Manhattan?

And which Greek resto serves the best meatless dolmades/yiaprakia/grape leaves?

Thanks for any of your suggestions and comments.
