“Good place for a casual eating. Reasonable. Their zucchini fritters are awesome, so are potatoes and impossible meatballs. We did not love pita though: it was either under baked or microwaved, not sure. But it’s just a wrinkle… The service is quick, the staff is friendly, and the place is very attractive, neat.” – Elena P
Gyro City was established by Jimmy and Penny Christopher, Greek immigrants who settled in Boston. They met in the United States, married, and went on to operate many eateries on the North Shore. Penny opted to continue the family company with her son Paul after Jimmy retired in 2012. Penny brought an authentic Greek grill to Boston by combining her years of expertise in the food industry with her passion for design. Penny and Paul now own Gyro City in Boston and Brighton, where they provide the most genuine Greek food outside of Athens by following Jimmy’s recipes.

“One of the best Greek restaurants I have been to. You get a good 3-4lbs of food for $13 which is amazing. The meat, rice, falafel, french fries and gyro are all so good. If you have a big stomach and enjoy Greek food like I do I recommend stopping here.” – John Rodriguez
KAVA neo-taverna is made out of food brought in straight from the Mediterranean, not just copies of Greek cuisine. A broad variety of mezedes, or small dishes, will be available, as well as imported feta cheese, horiatiki salad, and an ever-changing assortment of fresh-from-the-Mediterranean seafood such as lavraki seabass and grilled octopus. The bar has a selection of difficult-to-find Greek wines and liquors, as well as the regular spirits and specialty beers. There will be Greek coffee and traditional frappes, along with desserts like baklava, Greek yogurt and honey imported from Greece, and more.

“Every thing we had at KAVA was spectacular – particularly the Roka salad, grilled sausage, and pasta with braised short rib. The patio is lovely for summer dining al fresco. We also had the zucchini fries, spicy feta dip, and baked feta. Would come again in a heartbeat!” – Brooke Cunningham
Committee is the type of lively, inviting spot where the conversation flows, the shareable appetizers delight and satisfy, and the inventive cocktails keep the atmosphere light and joyful. Step inside and relax in a meeting spot that adds a fresh zing to the Boston waterfront–and a real flavor of Greece.

“Committee is a lively, fun spot with great food. Cocktails are pretty and more of a work of art. I sat at the bar and had the feta which was covered with sesame seeds then a drizzle of honey, the octopus and the meatballs. The meatballs were a little over cooked but the flavor was great. Finishing with the coconut cake was a treat.” – Diana Smith
Esperia Grill had its modest beginning. Tim and Georgia Athanasiadis, husband and wife proprietors, converted their pizzeria into a casual Greek kouzina in 2006, bringing top-notch gyros to Brighton. Marinated pig and chicken are taken off the spit and roasted on a flat-top grill before being wrapped in pita with a generous dollop of sour homemade tzatziki, as is customary. The generously portioned bundles will fill you up quickly, but leave space for the fried feta with honey and fig jam.

“Love this place! Can’t believe I didn’t know about it before. Discovered it on a Thurs, are leftovers Fri, and went back on Saturday. The moussaka is excellent – so well seasoned and well proportioned. The lemon potatoes are incredible! The spinach rice is delicious, as is the avgolemono soup and keftedes (meatballs). Everything has been wonderful, the restaurant is great value, they’re family-owned and friendly! Mayor Menino used to eat here all the time, apparently, and now we are regulars too” – Fran Bigman
