Friday and Saturday evenings at Tassos, live musicians furnish a beat for belly dancers who shimmy across the dance floor, imbuing the casual eatery with a raucous, lively atmosphere. In the kitchen, chefs charbroil and skewer lamb and gyro meats and drizzle their tender exteriors with classic sauces such as béchamel and tzatziki. In addition to offering traditional cuisine, owners Tasso and Katina uphold their Greek heritage by hosting an annual toga party and even sell breaking dishes that diners can smash in celebration of marriage or in frustration at impossible Rubik’s cubes.
