Athenian Room

The theory goes like this: The first time you eat at this unassuming Greek spot, you may try the gyro salad—well-spiced slices of meat sitting atop simple greens—and you’ll think: “Not bad.” Next time, you’ll try the creamy taramasalata on warm rounds of pita, and say: “Pretty good.” But according to the cultish customer base that swears by this place, it’s on your third visit—when you order the juicy chicken kebabs, the vinegary Greek fries or the flaky spanakopita—that the spell is cast.

I've been going to Athenian Room since I was a kid and it's still one of my favorite spots. It's not the lightest meal you'll have -- the vegetarian salad is literally just a Greek salad with a pile of fries on top -- but it hits the spot. Don't sleep on the chicken kabob or the gyros pita!
