At MP Taverna, chef Michael Psilakis sought to create a Greek restaurant built around the evocative way that food creates community and shared experience. The menu—featuring Psilakis' twists, innovations and celebrations of Greek cuisine—achieves this with offerings such as lamb shank served with orzo and root vegetables, grilled branzino and Greek paella. The souvlaki, meatballs, grilled octopus and smashed fries have all developed a following.
