Kokkari Restaurant Review

: Named for a small fishing village on the Aegean Sea, Kokkari is owned by the same partnership that runs Evvia Estiatorio in Palo Alto. The multimillion-dollar design presents a large, welcoming fireplace, lots of wood and pottery, and floor lamps that lend a sophisticated, intimate look. One homey feature is a 20-foot-long family table near the semi-open kitchen. Chef Erik Cosselmon (formerly of Cetrella and Rose Pistola) adds his own Mediterranean flair to the Greek menu. A simple appetizer of feta cheese served with mixed olives, extra virgin olive oil and oregano sings the flavors of the region beautifully. Dolmades satisfy with their savory mix of rice, currants and pine nuts. We like the rich and comforting moussaka, a casserole of eggplant, lamb and velvety b├ęchamel sauce. The mesquite grilled pork chop arrives with tender goat cheese dumplings. Even if you skip dessert, don't miss the coffee served Greek-style.
