This family-owned West Portal restaurant is a hidden gem, swathed in dark wood and decked with honeycomb-inspired art. The Loufas family whips up most of the menu from scratch, including daily-baked pita bread, house-made spreads and dips ($6 each; 4 for $18), and even locally-grown honey. Apart from traditional dishes like grilled lamb chops with roasted butternut squash and rotisserie chicken with roasted cauliflower and lemony Greek potatoes, Orexi is known for its flatbreads. The pillowy dough is baked to a light char, then topped with ingredients like house-made Greek sausage, feta and mizithra cheese, oregano pesto and more. Wash it all down with Greek beers from Fix, Mythos and Septem.
