Adorned with photos of Greek-island life, ceramics, and folk art, this sprawling midtown taverna is a stylishly rustic showcase for chef Jim Botsacos. The window tables up front are ideal for nibbling meze, but head for the dining room if you're in the mood for something gutsier, like the melting lamb shanks, clay-pot-baked with orzo and tomato, or "Molyvos moussaka," unfinishably rich (but still worth the attempt).


Three-course pre/post-theater dinner, 5:30 p.m.–7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.–close, $38; three-course lunch, noon–3 p.m., $25; brunch, Sat.–Sun., 11:30 a.m.–3 p.m., $24
