Greece,

Named for a sword dance where costumed locals reenact a fight between villagers and pirates during the Middle Ages, this family-run restaurant serves traditional, home-cooked Greek food and a few Turkish specialties. The one-story structure has a simple but bright interior, with an exposed-beam ceiling, white walls, and wooden furniture. Dishes include imam baldi (a cold Turkish dish of braised eggplant stuffed with tomatoes, onion, and garlic) and tirópites (a type of cheese pie). A stone wall and potted plants surround the shaded tables on the covered patio.
