Village Voice's Description

It's Greek to Me showcases the meat-bearing cuisine of the Greek mainland-specifically the eastern region of Thessaly, on the Aegean Sea, and partly reflects Turkish culinary influences. There's a sage-inflected gyro, zucchini balls called kolokithokeftedes, large cheap salads, and a sumptuous pork souvlaki, available in a pita sandwich or on a platter. The informal space is windmill-decorated and comfortable, but perhaps too well lit. For dessert, don't miss the homemade yogurt swimming in wildflower honey and topped with candied walnuts.

    For the meaty fare of the Greek mainland, check out It's Greek to Me, a Jersey chain with an annoying name that offers killer zucchini fritters called kolokithokeftedes.

Tips from foursquare

  • Olivia P. on 06/29/10

    The caviar dip (Taramosalata) is amazing

  • Christine D. on 11/10/12

    My constants are: roasted beets, fried zucchinni + tazatziki, chicken gyro. Always satisfying!

  • Nicole V. on 06/18/12

    Get the Gyro! It's HUGE and the best you'll ever have.
