Consider this Lincoln Square stalwart “Greektown North”—it’s got the same tangy taramasalata, creamy egg-lemon soup and moussaka as the rest of them. It’s what this place has that the others don’t—namely its signature lemon-and-oregano rubbed chicken—that makes it worth venturing out of Greektown. That, and the fact that it’s not nearly as crowded, which means shorter waits, fewer people and—most important—less flaming saganaki.
