meze feast at Meze Estiatorio

Great, garlic-loaded bean spread and good wheaty bread, excellent oil, and olives as a complimentary starter. Feast of small plates: a pikalia (dolmades, plus an assortment of cold spreads, all wonderful: tzatziki, skordalia, taramosalata, feta, melitzanosalata); souvlakia (chicken, beef, and pork kebabs); gigantes (big fava-looking lima beans, baked); garides athenon (shrimp in garlicky broth with tomato, feta, big croutons); superb saganaki. Lots of pita for spreads and sauce-mopping.

Good for an hour of leisurely nibbling, till the three of us could nibble no more. About $50, plus wine (another Greek red from their great selection, can't recall the bottle), tax, and tip, a bargain. Friendly service, but as ever, a punishingly loud room. Lots of large parties, which is probably a better way to eat here.
