If your idea of a Greek restaurant is gyros, spanikopita, and mousaka, get ready for a decidedly upscale -- though not terribly up-priced -- Greek dining experience. Mourayo specializes in seafood so be sure to try one of their fabulous fish selections. I especially like salt fish -- a good meaty fish of the day, encased in rock salt for baking, then brought to your table where the salt casing is cracked open and succulent slabs of perfectly cooked meat are separated from their bones and laid on your plate. It's not just delicious, it's fun to watch. The squid ink soup is appropriately rich and tasty, and anything wrapped in phylo will be worth sampling. The wait staff is happy to describe not only your dish but also the history of it in Greece. I even learned a few phrases in Greek from one delightful waiter. Highly recommended (reservations recommended on weekends especially).
