This Greek taverna—from Thessaloniki native Tom Galis (Mexicue)—focuses on food from the country's northern regions. Wine barrels hang from the ceiling above the bar, while mismatched woods, stencil crown molding and distressed window shutters add to the rustic vibe. Slip into a worn-leather banquette for shareable meze (sweetbreads, grape leaves) and rotisserie-cooked meats (leg of lamb, roasted chicken) with a glass of Macedonian wine. The ten-stool copper bar features an all-Greek wine list, Hellenic beers like Mythos and Alpha, and cocktails spiked with ouzo or mastika.
