About this business

Memorialized in paint, ancient Greeks dressed in flowing togas dance beneath the arches on the walls at Momos Ouzaria Taverna. At adjacent tables and pillow-lined booths, dining companions share small plates of Greek cuisine, such as the pan-seared bay scallops in tomato-garlic basil white wine sauce. Other small plates include traditional lamb gyros with feta and tzatziki sauce and grilled shish kababs. The focal point of the main dining area is a flickering fireplace bearing a tile mosaic of a satyr peaking from behind a tree, impatiently waiting for a beautiful sunbathing woman to dive into the river so that he can steal her bowl of hummus. Nearby, bartenders serve drafts and bottles of domestic, imported, and craft brews; mix shakers filled with signature martinis; and decant glasses of ouzo, the traditional Greek liqueur known for its herbal and anise flavors.
