MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The full name of this delightful retreat is “Merakia Greek Mountain Thief Spithouse Steak,” but the moniker isn’t the only memorable thing about it. To start with, the ample space is quite the looker, featuring a glinting open kitchen, cushy steel-blue velvet booths and massive arches overhead. Of course, then there’s the equally impressive cooking—don’t miss the “spit + sigs” (labeled “dancing with the lamb”), which is a spectacular plate of off-the-spit lamb. Other signatures may include a starter of ripe tomatoes paired with cool little triangles of feta, tailed by tender and slow-cooked octopus. Grilled lamb chops from the “American Meat” section, coupled with roasted lemon potatoes, will transport you to the Med and back, minus the jet lag.
