Best Greek


Veteran restaurateur George Servetas' newest project, Kristofer's is a hospitable neighborhood restaurant that serves delicious Greek standards at extremely reasonable prices. Among the starters, guests can't go wrong with a cup of steaming hot avgolemono, Greece's bright, bracing version of chicken soup, enriched with egg yolks, rice, and lemon; or the traditional saganaki, an ample square of salty kasseri cheese, doused with sweet brandy, set aflame tableside to shouts of "Opa!" There is no finer entrée than the marinated lamb chops, Athenian-style. A popular dish at the old Greek Isles, the thick-cut chops emerge from their three-day soak in a blend of olive oil, red wine, and herbs with sumptuous flavor and unsurpassed juiciness.
