I’ve not been to Greece yet but I am already in love with Greek food. Pylos serves rustic Greek home cooking and honors traditional greek cuisine by bringing fresh, wholesome cooking from all regions of Greece to the East Village. I caught up with my former roomie (whom I first met on IRC eons ago!) over dinner at Pylos one evening.

Started with appetizers of Htenia Me Fasolia Kai Roka – grilled wild sea scallops tossed with white beans and arugula and served with a dressing of extra-virgin greek olive oil and fresh lemon juice, and Dolmathes Avgolemono – grape leaves stuffed with rice, ground veal, herbs, golden raisins and pine nuts, served with egg-lemon sauce.

Moving on to entrees, she had the Lithrini Ston Fourno – whole red snapper, oven braised and served with seasonal vegetables. I had awesome Grilled Whole Bronzini (prepared in the simplest yet most delicious way, just lemon juice, olive oil, capers and parsley) with a side of Patates Psites – roasted potatoes seasoned with lemon, oregano, garlic and extra-virgin olive oil.

One of the few ways I really enjoy eating fish is when it’s prepared this way. As for the lemon potatoes, I love them so much I’ve made them several times at home, it’s super easy! Will share the recipe sometime.

I enjoy Greek food tremendously because it’s hearty yet never too heavy for me. Maybe all the fresh lemon juice helps. I can’t wait to go to Greece!
