When I crave Greek food, it is because i want a large quantity of comfort food.
Me and the boy were in the neighbourhood and happened upon Sfinaki Taverna.
We were seated after a couple minutes, and were allowed to peruse the menu for a little longer than expected (it was later found that the hostesses were all in the staff area talking about spring break plans. We considered telling our waitress that we weren't going anywhere for Spring Break when she came to take our order, just so we wouldn't feel left out. :p) but decided on the "Large Eaters Platter".
Since we were expecting a lot of food, we were slightly disappointed when the waitress brought us two salads, one plate of food, and one pita, sliced into sticks.
The salad was excellent; the ingredients were fresh, and there was a nice balance of salty cheese, olive oil, and the flavours of the vegetables. The tzatziki was also really good - nice and garlicky.
The platter consisted of two quails, two lamb chops, and one skewer of each beef and lamb, on a bed of rice. The lamb chops were the best thing on the platter; tender, juicy, with a nice crispy fat cap from the grill. The worst thing was one of the skewers - the meat actually tasted sour!
The disappointment was from the size of the platter - it was named the "Larger Eater Platter", but me and the boyfriend polished it off! I usually divide my plate at other Greek restaurants and take one half home for lunch the next day, but there were no leftovers at Sfinaki. The boyfriend even said that he "wasn't stuffed, and could eat more."
While some of the food at Sfinaki (lamb chops, tzatziki, and salad) were really good, they have to work on giving value to the customer. At ~$50 for a two person platter (no drinks or dessert) of just mediocre food, it's nice to know what Sfinaki offers, but I wouldn't go out of my way to return again.
