Petra Greek Restaurant Review

: Unlike its neighbors, unassuming Greek eatery Petra lacks multimillion dollar design and culinary refinement, but the food is fresh and inexpensive. The menu features traditional Greek dishes with a few American plates thrown in. Mini gyros and grilled haloumi are among the starters, while mains include souvlaki, lamb chops and burgers. Petra also features several Greek wines and beer, and for dessert, the requisite baklava.
