Greek Love

Saganaki mon amour

GP apparently does not offer avgolemono, that lemony, egg-yolky chicken broth that's as important to me when eating Greek as a shot or two of ouzo before the meal. In its stead, there was a hearty lentil soup, for which a squeeze of lemon does wonders. Nevertheless, I found avgolemono's absence here puzzling. As for the lamb shank, it didn't exactly fall off the bone, but they give you a big enough portion, and the potato-onion-tomato stew that accompanies it is true comfort fare.

Owner Abrahim Khoshaba fires up some saganaki: a slice of sheep's-milk cheese, doused with brandy, ignited, then extinguished with a squeeze of lemon.

Order baklava, and you receive a generous, slightly doughy square of honey-bathed goodness that'll have you dancing a Zorba-like jig. Small but pleasant, with the usual blue and white interior, and a patio strung with Xmas lights of the same colors, GP seems happy enough to remain a friendly little Greek bistro. Wish I'd known about it sooner, but the thrill of discovery was worth the wait.
