1st day Restaurant week - Molyvos

It's hard not to enjoy restaurant week and I expect to be busy.
Went to Molyvos on 7th for lunch. They had three appetizers available: meatballs, Greek salad, and lentil soup. The lentil soup was full of vegetables and had a rich, meaty lentil flavor.
Main courses: penne with vegetables, salmon, cabbage dolmades. The cabbage dolmades had a groud beef and lamb filling that was succulent and light. There was a bright, rich egg/lemon sauce and, I believe, chive oil accenting the plate. This was surprisingly good.
Dessert: baklava, semolina cake, rice pudding. The rice pudding was rich and had a slight lemon spark. Even though it was very good, it might have been too rich to close this meal.

I'm looking forward to some more good eating this week (Tabla, Metrazur, Esca), and I want to hear about what the rest of the pack is eating.
