The Friendly Greek, part 2

The Friendly Greek Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato


We enjoyed the restaurant so much on Christmas Eve  that we had to come back and order from the regular menu.

I recommend the kourtaki red wine -- it's a sweet wine, but not overpoweringly so.

The bread basket includes garlic bread loaded with real pieces of garlic.  There is olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the table if you'd rather dip plain bread.

We both started with the soup of the day -- the same seafood bisque we had at Christmas.  rich, thick and creamy, very satisfying.

The saganaki appetizer -- melted kaseri cheese served in a casserole -- was tasty.  Somehow we never received the pita that is supposed to accompany the dish, but I don't think we really cared.

The classic yeero platter came with pita and tzatziki, and enough yeero meat and French fires to feed two people, maybe three.

I ordered the mousaka -- layers of eggplant, potatoes and meat sauce topped with bechamel.  The dish was well seasoned, the bechamel almost cloudlike in its consistency.

Too full for dessert, I took an order of galactoburiko home.

I'm definitely in love.
