Do the young Greeks who pack this trendy, clubby restaurant know something you don’t? Yes. And they probably want to keep this place to themselves. But we have to crash on nights when we want Greek munchies like the Florina peppers (two roasted red peppers stuffed with creamy feta), loukaniko (a pork-lamb sausage), “toasts” (essentially panini) and huge gyro platters. If you can stop yourself from talking by shoveling in the food, nobody will know you don’t belong.
