Filos Greek Taverna, Northampton
I just saw in the Gazette that this new place on Main St. opened on Thursday. Having just done the groceries for the week, I don't know when we'll make it there....but looking forward to some reports! Please be good!!
Had dinner there Friday. All the food is on display, and you choose what you want and order at the counter. Food is then delivered to your table. Very Greek. The hostess explained the dishes in detail. Many choices. Among them, stuffed peppers, calimari (octupus to the Greeks) salad, pastitsio, moussaka, gyros, lemon potatoes, dolmades, etc., with souvlaki entrees. Service was fast. The place is small, brightly lit, and could become quite crowded. It seems to have become popular quickly. Prices are not low, but portions are generous. At last! Greek food in Noho.
Okay, went back into town today (and found parking!) and made it to Filos Greek Taverna. I got the kebab sandwich (pita, with onion, tomato, fries, tzatziki and kebab) and my husband got the gyros pita. They were both huge and very good. The kebab was more intensely flavored than the gyros, the pita was fresh and tasty (I haven't eaten a lot of Greek food, so don't have any good comparisons). Service was very friendly. Our girls decided on pizza slices, which they loved, but my husband said were mediocre.
Also, a friend went and got the patsitsio ("lasagna" with meat and bechamel) and said it was really good, very light.
We'll go back. It was BYOB and they had little cards at the register that if you go around the corner to State St. Liquors and show the card, you will get 10% off a bottle of wine.
