2014 BEST GREEK WINNER:
Greek Islands Taverna
They may dance on the tables in other Greek spots. But if you want real Greek soul food, head to brothers Sam and George Kantzavelos' place.
Char-grilled lamb chops are the calling card, but there's nothing on the menu that you wouldn't find served by a fine Greek home cook: pastitsio, moussaka, stuffed tomatoes and peppers.
While it's no-reservations policy can have you waiting during the busy winter season, meals here are always worth the time.
