Zo: A User’s Guide
- Mozzarella-tomato-basil pita wrap with field greens, balsamic vinaigrette, and olive oil
- Original gyros with lean pork rotisserie on warm pita, along with tzatziki, tomato, and onion
- Avgolemono lemon chicken rice soup
Where to Sit: Zo is a small, busy counter-service café, so you may want to grab a seat on the patio outside or take your meal to go.
- Show up in person. The chefs at Zo hold themselves to a rigid standard of freshness, so they don’t take phone orders or deliver.
- Make sure to try the gyros. Unlike many Mediterranean restaurants, chefs here slice from a swirling rotisserie of fresh marinated pork, not a defrosted side of beef.
Avgolemono: a thick, typically chicken-based soup, formed by heating egg, lemon juice, and broth together with rice
Tzatziki: a traditional Greek sauce made from yogurt, cucumbers, and garlic that’s typically served with meat dishes
