The menu’s seasoned meatballs with imported Greek yogurt ($8.95) roll out a tangy carpet for traditional entrees such as lamb shanks over housemade pasta ($19.50), charcoal-broiled pork chops ($16.95), and the chicken-souvlaki platter ($14.95), which totes pita, veggies, and tzatziki sauce.<p>
The pathway to Taverna Ouzo is long and shaded, bordered on both sides by short brick walls and covered by a stretch of awning. This route affords visitors a short time to absorb the aromas that drift from the building ahead: mediterranean spices, burning charcoal, and horta—a traditional side of boiled dandelion greens. Once they reach the entrance, they step into a sea of royal blue and crisp whites, which pay homage to the Grecian flag. The dining room's bright color scheme also evokes a coastal bistro, and decorative vines looping around barrels mounted near the ceiling augment that illusion. However, a stone fireplace bookended by shelves of wine reminds guests that they are indeed indoors.
In this cheery setting, the scents of spices and charcoal are consuming, wafted around by servers carrying carefully marinated dishes flecked with imported ingredients. Plates of housemade spaghetti and clay pots brimming with orzo cushion tender lamb shanks, whereas vegetarian entrees stuff tomatoes and eggplants with veggies and rice. Seafood entrees of snapper, sautéed shrimp, and wild salmon dressed in avocado-tzatziki sauce reinforce the shoreline ambiance without relying on beach-ball garnishes.
