Taxim Restaurant Review

: Greek food gets a major makeover at this Wicker Park restaurant. Gone are the plates of flaming cheese and typical lamb kebabs; in their place is an interesting array of small and large plates perfect for sharing. Owner David Schneider taps into his Greek heritage and memories of summers spent in the rural villages in the Aegean Islands to create dishes such as fakés (Greek green lentils with fermented sheep feta); Kappadókia-style lamb sausage with kasseri cheese and pickled grey shallots; and red wine-marinated smoked pork. Be sure to try the house-made yogurt, either paired in a savory dish or as dessert with honey and walnuts. The creativity spills over to the décor, which includes brass Byzantine-style lanterns, copper-topped tables and dramatic archways. The Mediterranean theme can be found on the all-Greek wine list as well.
