Axios Estiatorio


If all you know about Greek food could fit in a pita, you’re in for a sexy, sexy surprise. Axios Estiatorio has all sun-drenched, sea-breezy stuff -- rich with lamb and lemons, olives and almonds, eggplant and yogurt, phyllo and feta. And this grown-ups’ go-to not only presents it with gusto, but also pairs it with one of the the city’s coolest wine lists, devoted almost entirely to Greece’s distinctive native grapes.
