Best of Boston

2016 Best Greek Restaurant, Old School

Esperia Grill

The pride is palpable at this family-owned outfit in Brighton Center, where you can order a super gyro at the counter or be ushered to a seat by doting servers. Big portions of comfort food—including a béchamel-blessed moussaka and a block of fried feta smothered with honey and fig jam—are marvelous, magnanimous expressions of Hellenic home cookery.
