2013 Best Greek Restaurant

Esperia Grill

A Greek restaurant can be measured by the quality of its tzatziki alone, and at this Brighton spot, it’s first-rate: flavorful, not too yogurty, and delivered in huge portions. The keftedes (Greek-style meatballs) and spinach pies are also tasty, but it’s the gyros—overflowing with perfectly cooked meat—that are the menu’s true heroes. The only thing that makes them better? A large dollop of tzatziki, of course.
