MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This delicious restaurant has all of Lincoln Park buzzing these days, and for fitting reason. Tucked into a pretty, polished corner space that's decked out with glossy windows up front, this inviting "taverna" also flaunts a curated Greek wine list and nicely crafted cocktails, both of which pair delightfully with its cuisine—complete with a Mediterranean ease and sensibility.Chef/owner Louie Alexakis wows his diners from the get-go by way of creamy Greek spreads, which are all but mandatory. Crispy kataifi prawns, pooled in Boukovo pepper-mayo, may then be tailed by the moussaka tselementes, combining succulent lamb, creamy béchamel, potatoes, and eggplant. For dinner, go big with the Greek Feast barbecue lamb that must be ordered 72 hours in advance.
