  1. Hi, I've gone to snack twice one of the times with my best friend who is Greek and the small plates and apps are a moderate size, possibly smaller than you may expect in comparison to other greek restaurants. Some good dishes that we liked are the melitzanosalata, the roasted eggplant meze and the lamb stifado which is braised in a tasty sauce, which i don't think the dinner portion is, so I would say to definitely try it even if you are getting the lamb entree. The keftedes meatballs and butter beans were good but the beans would have been better if they were just a little softer, and the greek salad was fresh. Grilled Octopus was also done well if you like that type of thing and we wanted to but did not try the shrimp saganaki
