Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The Columbia of ’50s beatniks and ’60s rebels lives on. In pleasing contrast to the area’s newer upscale cafés, Symposium is casual and low-priced, and the menu is illustrated like a hippie comic book. Unfortunately, mellowing out seems to have led to occasional nodding off. Traditional appetizers are well made, especially the namesake salad, a platter of delicious dips and saganaki (baked kasseri goat cheese that arrives aflame). Roasted lamb and grilled fish were satisfying. But moussaka and lamb pie were underseasoned, and the cooked-to-oblivion side vegetables were indeed a ’60s flashback.
