The Grapevine Restaurant Review

: Locals flock to this jovial eatery that offers dishes made with garden-fresh ingredients. Not long after placing your order, baskets of sesame seed-slathered bread arrive. Lemony avgolemono soup is a must, followed by garlic potato salad and a zesty taramosalata that’s perfect for slathering on puffy pita bread. Next up, it's char-broiled chicken stuffed inside a handmade pita along with oven-roasted vegetables, doused with piquant tzatziki; Greek entrées such as spanakopita or grape leaves filled with beef and rice; and a tequila-lime chicken sandwich cradled by a ciabatta roll. Specials are sometimes worth considering.
