An unassuming gyro joint in a neighborhood with no shortage of such eateries, bZ grill distinguishes itself by serving Cypriot specialties like seftalia, a handmade pork sausage, along with delicious renditions of more standard gyros and kebabs. The restaurant does a large share of takeout and delivery, but also offers a bare-bones, but pleasant, dining area a few steps down from the main counter. Greek fries, oven-baked and bombed with toasted feta cheese dusted with oregano, are so addictive that it’s no wonder they are one of the most ordered items. Diners seeking a knife-and-fork meal can select from a variety of meat platters, which come with a side of rice or fries.Recommended Dishes
