2007 BEST Greek Restaurant

Desfina

Nowadays a lot of trendy kitchens are "interpreting" Greek classics. Hole-in-the-wall Desfina, by contrast, cooks up classics that taste just as they would at an Athens taverna. The pikilia, an appetizer plate with a handful of flavors, boasts a wonderfully tangy tzatziki. The grilled octopus app, zesty with lemon, will turn first-time tentacle tasters into devotees. And there’s plenty to go around: The first course eats like a meal in itself.
