Mourayo Restaurant Review

: Ouzo, orzo and moussaka may define Greek cooking for some DC folks. But Dupont Circle’s Mourayo, instead of trotting out the tried and true assemblage of dishes, serves classic Greek cooking. Imagine a pork tenderloin sweetened with figs and a brush of honey sauce, or a lamb stew of buttery meat braised in a rich sauce and served with orzo. Start with sautéed prawns with a tomato-feta sauce and a beggar's purse of phyllo filled with red peppers and cheese. One may also consider tiny wheat cakes with rose petals. It's important to note that all this does not come with a whopping price tag. Décor portrays a Greek seaside setting with its striking blue walls and waiters in sailor outfits. It sounds cutesy, but it actually works. Besides, you won't care what's on the walls when you are busy enjoying the meal. Be sure to check out the selection of Greek wines.
