Yanni's Restaurant Review

: Yanni’s bright blue and white exterior makes one think of the Greek Islands rather than the mainland or the middle of Greenwood. Since 1984, the family-run taverna has been serving authentic Greek food in a delightfully kitschy, comfortable room festooned with colorful pottery. Yanni Avgoustiou commands the kitchen, and Mama Avgoustiou, his wife, makes the dolmathes and spanakopita. As a starter, pair the tzatziki with aromatic stuffed grape leaves. For a main course, we suggest the moist rotisserie chicken (order the dish early because it may run out). The moussaka is also a hit, with its eggplant, meat sauce (infused with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove) and creamy béchamel. There's an all-Greek wine list and plenty of retsina. For dessert, don't miss Mama's galaktoboureko, sticky custard-filled phyllo rolls.
