Schlep to the ’burbs for a Greek meal when Greektown’s a stone’s throw away? You will once you taste this cozy, authentic eatery’s crispy fries doused in lamb gravy and feta (ask nicely for this unlisted treasure); tender, falling-off-the-bone lamb; earthy, monk-made wines like Agioritikos; and addictive fasolia gigantes (lima beans in a heavy tomato sauce). Spiro and Sofia Papageorge, the enchanting owners, treat every patron like long-lost family.
