The restaurant's design manages to be modern and rustic at the same time, with rough whitewashed walls and an incredible number of clay pots dangling overhead….I've never had such a light, flavorful version, layers of eggplant and ground meat crowned by a béchamel that was almost meringue-like….The all-Greek wine list abounds with crisp whites and mellow reds; the charming servers are able to demystify unfamiliar varieties and regions. The East Village is lucky to have landed such a treasure."
