Greek to Us

It’s hard to find, but authentic Greek food is no myth.

eally good, authentic Greek food can be hard to find. Especially when the best place to get it is a tiny hole in the wall between much larger buildings. You practically need to get out your magnifying glass to find the Greek Corner, but once you do, and you go up the narrow stairway to the landing where you order, you won’t be disappointed. All of the kebabs, wraps, and dinner plates here are made with fresh, perfectly seasoned meats. But the gem is the gyro, made with grilled lamb and a little bit of spicy seasoning and topped with an authentic cucumber sauce to cool it down. If you’re lucky enough to get a table in the cramped dinning room downstairs, the murals of seaside scenery will transport you to the Mediterranean Sea. The original, larger location is near Davis Square. Burns
