The lowdown: Everything is house-made and it shows. The moussaka builds from soft layers of sliced potatoes to a subtly sweet ground-meat mixture flavored with nutmeg and cinnamon to a crown of whipped potatoes. The large square portion comes with a small Greek salad composed of ultra-crisp greens, black olives, red onions and crumbled feta cheese with a small container of oil and vinegar dressing. The souvlaki and gyro are tucked into warm pita bread wraps with generous amounts of tzatziki, the traditional cool and creamy yogurt sauce crafted with diced cucumbers and freshly minced garlic. The baklava ($3) is a honey-drenched temptress.
