The prices are too high, but there's something charmingly old school about the white tablecloths and eagerness to please at this Greek spot. The best items can be found in the appetizer section: grilled octopus dressed simply in lemon juice and served with stewed lima beans; mussels in restina wine, or an assortment of spreads including a very briny taramasalata. Moussaka is gooey and comforting, with thick layers of b├ęchamel interspersed with ground beef, crisp potatoes and eggplant.
