Park Slope, Prospect Heights, South Slope (to 18th St.)
This venue is closed.
Nestled among brownstones on a residential stretch in Park Slope, the Greek café Helios is a bit short on atmosphere: One stunted Doric column used by a hostess is the sole thematic accent. The food from owner Aristos Tzammos is the focus here, drawing upon Tzammos’s Greek upbringing. There’s a traditional menu of salads, meats, and spreads. The pikilia sampler, ready with abundant pita triangles, includes a mild and creamy version of the feta dip kafteri, a garlic-pungent spinach blend called spanaki, and hummus. Salads are sizable enough to share; the classic Greek with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, feta, and dressing is particularly refreshing. Voluminous souvlaki pita wraps come filled with lamb, steak, chicken, veal, sausage, or veggies, topped with tomato, onions, lettuce, and white tzatziki sauce; each order accompanied by seasoned fries or a side salad. All-natural beef burgers are an unexpected best seller as well, with a choice of chiles, guacamole, mushrooms, and avocado toppings. Dine alfresco in summer at mosiac tables out back, when sun filters through vines curling through the trellis above.Recommended Dishes
