Anybody been to the newish place on Whyte Ave. near 109th St.?
Tried to stop in for dinner a couple Fridays ago and they were full with a wait so we decided to make reservations for the next evening.
What a great surprise. My wife and I enjoyed every single course. The cuisine is Greek/Mediterranean but without falling into all the stereotypes. Totally different category than Koutouki or Yianni's. Way more modern and innovative.
Apps: fattoush salad and feta wrapped in phyllo and fried, drizzled with honey and nuts
Mains: my wife had duck, I had beef short ribs, both delicious
Desserts: some kind of mini fried dough fritters, dipped in melted chocolate and sprinkled with cinnamon, and a no-bake sour cherry cheesecake (mascarpone over a graham cracker base).
Total of 3 glasses of wine between us. The wine list is quite short and in all honesty not super interesting but the wine was good and fairly priced. Coffees at the end were also well priced at $2 for an espresso, which I always appreciate when I see some places charging up to $3.50 for them.
Our server was a pro. The room is small but tastefully lit. We're looking forward to our next visit!
