Kellari Taverna Restaurant Review

: The name Kellari, "cellar" in Greek, refers to the 250 bottles of wine on offer at the Taverna and certainly not the space. With its soaring church-style ceilings and spacious dining room, it is anything but subterranean. The style is one of classic simplicity; the color scheme of warm beige tones, exposed beams of natural wood and white drapery create a soothing atmosphere in which to linger over the Greek and Mediterranean menu of traditional taverna selections. Mezedes, or small plates, include grilled fish ordered by the pound and seafood as well as meats. The kavourokeftedes, blue crab cakes with pickled vegetables and saffron skordalia, are moist and delicately flavored. The pompano, de-boned and simply charcoal-grilled, is flaky and light with just a hint of roasted flavor.
