Husband and wife Ahmet Erkaya and Anastasia Koutsioukis opened this warm, inviting restaurant in a restored 1940s bungalow in the Design District in 2009. In the years since, they’ve established themselves by serving up excellent, simple Mediterranean food. In addition to the property’s garden, where they harvest their own seasonal ingredients, the 150-seat space boasts a beautiful outdoor dining area and a bakery. Small plates include grilled octopus, pickled beet roots, and keftedes; there are plenty of fresh salads to choose from in addition to heartier offerings, like lamb gyro or the whole grilled Mediterranean sea bass.
