Surprisingly intimate for its large size, this haute Greek emporium offers unfussy yet elegant preparations of Mediterranean seafood. Plump scallops encased in delicate phyllo make for a standout appetizer, and a piece of Dover sole needs little human intervention to improve on its flavor (a spritz of lemon does the trick). Attentive service and an exhaustive wine list (including many Greek bottles) cap off the experience. Order the baklava for dessert, a superb version with the combination of toasted almonds, honey, flaky pastry and an unexpected scoop of mango sorbet.
