Cozy bistro with an eclectic menu. A nice stop before or after a film at Midtown Art Cinema.
Ecco, operated by Fifth Group Restaurants, remains one of the best restaurants in our city. Great wine list. The fried goat cheese with honey and cracked pepper is legendary.

This tiny Greek gem is a complete family affair. Although there's no dining area - don't even try to eat inside or you'll get a fatherly scolding from Nick - the comforting food travels well and is always made to order. Crispy wedges of Greek-style fries are lemony, heavily seasoned with dried oregano and served with a garlicky tzatziki sauce. The lamb gyro wrap is a cylinder of warm, pillowy pita overflowing with lamb sliced from the iconic revolving tower and spiked with tangy tzatziki that plays well against the heaviness of the meat. It's just like having your very own Greek mama.
To enjoy a meal at Taverna Plaka, get drunk off the lengthy list of Greek wines, dance and order the mezze. The many appetizer-size dishes tend to be better than the entrees, and we recommend the very spicy but irresistible pork-and-lamb sausage.
