This is a good place to go if you want to keep things healthy and casual, and they serve one of the best Greek Salads in the city (this version is made with kale, cucumber, tomato, pickled red onion, salt-cured olives and feta).

And how did the front-of-house folks treat you?
High standards are the norm here, and the service is no exception. It's quick, efficient, and friendly.
