We were pleased that the moussaka offered distinct layers that were nicely seasoned, when so much moussaka out there is a mush. My lamb chops (with a third lemon sauce, this one with wine) came in a slightly misshapen, funny little group. But they were moist, tender, and had been taken off the charcoal grill at the right moment. The grilled lamb, beef, and chicken, whether on the shish kebabs or the souvlaki, was uniformly well prepared, tender with subtle spice. Greek Corner’s gyros are the closest thing this town has to good shwarma, which every town needs. The sauce is tangy, a little yogurty and a little bit mayo. The meat is tender and spicy and crumbly. The onions add some sharpness and the lettuce seems fresh. Several different bottles of Greek wine are available for around $20.
There next to Oriental Table and Tandoor, Greek Corner fits right in even as its replacement of Bandol changes the balance of the block away from fine dining (now Natasha’s exclusively) toward pleasant and affordable, though not really cheap, “ethnic” restaurants. It’s good to have three of these places so close to the movies, and especially the Old Port’s bars — the closest thing we have to ancient Greece what with the intoxicated teenagers, the misogyny, the questionable sexuality, the occasional cruelty, and the good time had by all. Greek Corner is a fine place to fuel up for it.
