This cream-colored box (the name means "something else"), far from the traditional Greek neighborhoods, favors meat over fish. The moussaka is perhaps the best in town-ground meat and cloud-like béchamel mounted on a bed of potatoes; the falafel is more delicate and finely textured than you'll find in Middle Eastern places. While the over-diced octopus salad and swordfish kebabs left us unimpressed, the charred and skinless Cypriot sausages known as sheftelia knocked us for a loop, and so did the skin-on french fries. Added bonus: The non-seafood entrés-most under $10-come with salad and choice of starch.
