Tasso’s Modern Greek Cuisine’s head chef Kostas Anyfantis fuses traditional and modern culinary styles to cultivate a menu of Greek dishes made with imported ingredients. In the hoirino souvlaki, a skewer shoulders hefty pieces of pork tenderloin and vegetables ($16), whereas makaronia me thalassina’s ($20) linguine noodles romp in a light tomato sauce as crowded with shrimp, octopus, mussels, and squid as Poseidon’s piggy bank. Dolmades wrap vine leaves around a tidy package of meat, rice, and herbs ($14), and spanakopita follows suit with spinach, feta, and spices delivered in a flaky phyllo-dough case ($14). Additionally, a full bar and wine list sate thirsty minds rendered dry by arguments over favorite pankration athletes beneath the restaurant’s potted plants and paintings of sweeping Mediterranean seascapes.
