Zesty’s, Philadelphia, PA

Zesty’s Restaurant Review

: Zesty's offers a vast selection of mostly Greek dishes---inspired by owner Athanassios "Tom” Konidaris' homeland---with a smattering of Italian pastas. Have the assorted appetizers or grilled squid or octopus, or something different such as fried smelts with olive oil. If you don't want favorites like moussaka, pastitsio and spanakopita for an entrée, you can always go with one of several whole grilled fish, a pasta dish or even marinated and grilled ostrich with mango and peach relish. The chef uses apple wood in the grill and it imparts a delicate flavor to the seafood and meats. Baklava is one of the best of the homemade desserts. The bar, Munk & Nunn, complete with church pew seating, is a good place to drink and munch. Best of all, it stays open late.
