It’s clear Kava Neo-Taverna trusts in the value of simple, superior ingredients. Most of the fare is imported from the Mediterranean (wines included); simple small plates like horiatiki (the Greek country salad), spanakopita, grilled octopus and souvlaki are executed so sublimely you might have to return a second time to venture onto the entrée side of the menu (although the grilled sea bass and mixed grill are well worth your first visit). Finish the evening with a glass of Retsina and a square of baklava as you gaze at the wall mural of an old Greek fisherman and mentally transport yourself to Santorini.
Boston offers a wealth of Euro-accented dining and drinking options—there are the city's best Italian restaurants and best Mediterranean restaurants, for starters—but there's nothing like some comforting Hellinic fare. Fortunately, when it comes to delicious tzatziki and souvlaki, not to mention sticky-sweet baklava, these local eateries will satisfy all your Greek food cravings. A filling Greek feast is perfect for groups, while many Greek favorites like gyros and spinach pies are great to grab and go while checking out some of the best things to do in Boston.
