      I think the mousaka at Pylos kills Ethos.

        I also like the moussaka at Ethos. Can't compare it to Pylos (where we went for the first time recently) or to Molyvos (where we haven't been in ages) because I've never had it at either place. Never been to Thalassa. As regards martinis, I don't think that's possible at Ethos.

          Actually I am pretty sure that Ethos has a full bar...

        2. re: G3B

          Agreed with Ethos...the Moussaka is fantastic. I was underwhelmed by the pastisio at Pylos.

        3. Martini's and Moussaka???.....Not so much.

            Actually....make the martini with Pernod (annisey) instead of dry vermouth and you have the perfect compliment to greek food, IMHO that is. I like the olives to come with feta or blue cheese.
