When restaurateur Chris Papas set about creating a Greek taverna, he decided to serve simple, healthy dishes that follow the Mayo Clinic diet––less salt, more fresh herbs, and heart-healthy oils. Below the iron curves of hanging lights, tables hold specialty dishes such as greek lasagna and Aunt Geri's family-recipe moussaka. Fresh whole fish like snapper, bronzino, and dorade as well as filets of Pacific sea bass and sole are brought in daily. Shrimp and lamb souvlaki platters marinate in special Greek-imported spices in the kitchen before they're brought out to pair with more than 20 wines by the glass and 30 by the bottle. After taking a final bite of their gyro, guests can replace the desserts perpetually stolen from their windowsills with housemade baklava.
