While you can get pizza and tacos practically anywhere, there are specific dishes you can get ONLY at a Greek eatery: tart Avgolemono soup; salty taramosalata to slather of fresh bread (and oh, that Greek bread); saganaki; and spanakopitakia. If you're on the North Shore, Avli Estiatorio is your Greek archipelago. With so much produced in-house (sauces, marinades, stocks, desserts and even gyros), you would assume correctly that the food at Avli Estiatorio is outstanding. Have a glass of Greek wine while perusing the extensive menu to decide if you're ging to make a meal out of the list of meze (dolmades, saganaki, tomato fritters with yogurt-dill sauce, grilled artichokes with capers, Greek meatballs, and more) or you'll share a huge dinner salad and attack an entree like moussaka, kabobs, seafood or Avli's homemade gyros. Desserts are equally intriguing: Greek cheesecake or yogurt mousse with fig syrup, among the tempting.
- Greek: "The full dinner menu is available all day (in case you have a hankering for Yemista in the middle of the day) and brunch everyday until 2 p.m."
- Best for Greek Because: Avli perfectly executes traditional Greek dishes but also elevates the cuisine by way of freshness and invention.
