I am not someone who is good with words but let me tell you 'bout this place, Calypsos. ""So there's a new greek restaurant on 27th Ave, want to go try it for dinner tonight?"", That's what a friend of mine asked me Friday night. Me loving Greek food I said, ""sure, why not!"" Being the new guy on the block I expected the place to be lacking business, well I couldn't have been more wrong. If I am correct there were only two tables open to sit at when we arrived and people were still coming in after we say down. Busy, just what a new restaurant wants to be! We were promptly greeted by the owner of the restaurant and he was quik to seet us and get us our beverages. I was hoping for a glass of wine but, they do not serve alcohol yet, wasn't too disappointed, just wanted some good food. The server, (gosh I can't remember her name, I think it starts with an ""A""), was very attentive and did a spectacular job with the table side, ""Flamming Cheese"" Saganaki! We ordered Hummus, Falafel and Chicken Slovoki, (Kabobs) with Green Beans and Artichokes. The food, taste and presentation, was fabulous. The Falafel was the best I've had since I was visited my friends restaurant in Chicago, and my friend truely enjoyed the lemon in the artichokes. I loved the presentation of the plates as they came, the lemon zest made my day on the artichokes! I was very pleased with the artwork, by local artists, that's nice to see. The atmosphere was relaxed and romantic so much so that I could bring a date here. I have to say, I will be going back to try something new. If everything is as tasty as the dishes we had, I have a feeling I may have a new favorite Greek restaurant, Calypsos!! Good luck to them.
Pros: Food, Lighting, service
