Milestone of Wellesley's bill of Mediterranean fare, which has been lauded on NECN, includes Greek recipes passed down from the owner's grandmother, as well as a variety of Italian and European dishes. Meals begin with appetizers such as arancine, fritters packed with pork and beef bolognese dusted in parmesan and doused with green-pea purée like the coach of a winning chef's football team. Before spoons dive into the warm egg-lemon broth of a rice soup, forks excavate spanakopita's flaky layers of philo pastry for rich veins of spinach, green onion, and feta. Bold flavors dominate the entree menu's flat-iron steak glazed in Madeira wine and trailed by fluffy mashed potatoes and sweet caramelized onions. Nimble fingers lay out a bed of tender eggplant and potatoes, blanketing all with creamy béchamel and meat ragout before pairing it with a greek salad's carnival of summer vegetables.
Soft peach walls and dusky rose banquettes fill the long, narrow dining room, in which wood-paneled barrel ceilings imbue the galley space with a light and airy feel. Perch along the sparkling, granite bar, or relax on the outdoor patio to feel Mother Nature whisper jealous breezes through windblown tresses.
