Kostas Cafe

On a stretch of Greenville Avenue just south of Lovers Lane, there is a panoply of eating establishments. The unassuming blue and white structure is owned by Greek-born Dimitri Ioannides and caters to the spanakopita-loving phalanxes. The intimate space and its tables are filled with local business workers during lunch and couples and friends on nights and weekend. On the weekends, an accordion player serenades diners enjoying dolmas (grape leaves stuffed with rice and beef) and mousaka (a cream-topped ground beef and eggplant casserole). The latter has received plaudits aplenty. Lunch sets you back approximately $10, which may give you cause to say "Opa!" Just don't break any plates after copious glasses of Hatzimichalis, a Hellenic cabernet sauvignon, please. It's a white-tablecloth kind of eatery.
