Dirt Cheap Eats 2008: Greek Deli

This popular takeout’s Greek combo platter ($9.99) could feed at least two people with its large, delicious portions of cheesy spanakopita, comforting baked-pasta pastitsio punched up with nutmeg, a boulder-size meatball over orzo, stewed green beans that maintain their snap, plus house-made bread and a side salad. It’s not just a meal; it’s a dare. The souvlaki sandwich ($7.25) is more like a succulent lamb stew tucked into a pita, the tender meat melding with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, fresh herbs, and house-made yogurt. Get there late and some favorites—such as the chicken-lemon soup—may be long gone. Open weekdays for breakfast and lunch.
