Ithaki Mediterranean Cuisine
For native Greeks, each bite of moussaka at Ithaki Mediterranean Cuisine is like a warm, delicious hug. Owner Petros Markopoulos and his team individually bake each serving, layering together beef, eggplant, zucchini, and spices, and topping it all in a delectable béchamel sauce. That cooked-to-order dish is just one of the ways Petros reminds his fellow Greeks of home—while also introducing nonnatives to the flavors and comforts of Mediterranean cuisine. In a 2005 review, The Boston Globe happily noted that Petros "doesn't veer when it comes to the classics," though some of the menu goes beyond the Mediterranean, such as the fried Cape Ann haddock sandwich.
In 2010, a 15-week renovation brought even more comforts to the restaurant. Petros expanded the building, adding colorful accents such as oil paintings, comfy couches, and a full bar, where diners can nibble gyros while watching a game or listening to occasional live music. He also expanded the menu to include a selection of small plates and a raw bar.
