GREEK TAVERNA: 292 Bloomfield Ave Mtclr.
Dined w/a friend there this evening. Restaurant is a wide open place with some small family size areas & a separate party room. Appetizer of taramasalta and toasted pita was OK but dinners of Horiatiki w/grilled chicken and grilled chicken platter were absolutely delicious and very generous portions. The tzatsiki was also really great with fresh herbs. Dessert left a lot to be desired: the Kaitaifi was xclnt: but the baklava had no layers of phyllo just a pile of spiced nuts and the top layer of phyllo was soggy: the melomakarona we either stale or over-baked, very dry, not honey soaked (I dunked mine in my coffee & left 1/2 of it and the couriambiedes were also very dry, not the typical soft shortbread, even the powered sugar was dry. We we still return because the meal was great and other meals that patrons had ordered were plated attractively and smelled delicious. I would definitely return with my family and would do so quite often.

This is the sunniest, grooviest West coast- inspired pop ever...
