It's all Greek to me...

It seems rarer and rarer that I find a restaurant I'm really excited about in NY, but I was pleasantly surprised by my meal at Pylos this weekend.

Defining itself as "rustic Greek home cooking," the restaurant offered up some traditional Greek menu items (saganaki, moussaka) with a twist (moussaka was artichoke-based instead of eggplant-based; meatballs were filled with bits of rice).

The atmosphere is comfortable yet trendy, with exposed brick walls, wine racks as room dividers, and hundreds of terra cotta pots hanging from the ceiling.

The low point was waiting for a table when we had a reservation (at 10:30 p.m., no less), but the wait was worth it...and didn't ruin my chances of returning.
