Mussels in fennel and ouzo arrived alongside crispy fries seasoned with salt and rosemary. Ask for a side of the sauce which is served with the artichoke to dip the fries. Delish!
This was one amazing plate of spanikopita. Flaky, buttery and HOT. Be careful not to burn the roof of your mouth!

The menu is well-priced for the neighborhood and has a relaxed vibe. We ordered tapas-style and shared which allowed a bit more choice for two. Things we ordered:
- The artichoke with aoli for dipping plus a side of fennel
- Calamari salad - good but could use a little more seasoning or flavor (lemon and pepper?)
- Mussels with ouzo and fennel. Comes with a side of rosemary fries
- Spanikopita - great execution on a classic dish
- Dessert - chocolate torte (good, but isn't all chocolate?)
Overall, the type of place you really want to see in your 'hood. It's a welcome addition and a place I will return to soon. Oh, and stellar service!
