Review: Andreas

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  March 30, 2011

We couldn't pass up the hot meze platter ($19.99). It could be a full meal for two, piled with wedges of spanikopita, spinach, and feta layered with phyllo; meaty stuffed grape leaves; grilled souvlaki slices; marinated chicken; deliciously spicy Greek sausage slices; all topped with pieces of pita bread and a large chunk of Kasseri cheese, similar to but more flavorful than feta.

Having decided to go Greek tapas, we next had grilled lamb ribs ($10.99), but they were too fatty for my taste. More than making up for them were the mini-pastitsio ($6.99), a wedge of ziti and minced beef baked with a cream sauce, draped with grilled asparagus; and mini-moussaka ($6.99), minced beef below a layer of roasted eggplant and above sliced potatoes, delicious. Our one entrée was haddock Spetsai style ($17.99), a highly recommendable dish baked with plum tomatoes and loads of Kalamata olives and giant caper berries.

We were too full for dessert, but I'm sure they could come up with a nice baklava if you said please (parakalo).
