back to Pylos

We’ve been back to Pylos a few times.  Going back somewhere is such a treat when the food is just as good if not better than it had been in the past.  Last night the food was delicious. 

I have always loved the earthen pots hanging from the ceiling and the lighting.  Also, in the warmer months they open the front to the street.  Service could be a bit better like cleaning up the plates quicker but otherwise a good find in the East Village.

Last night we split a bunch of appetizers to start.  Grill octopus which is charred and moist, a big Greek salad with large fresh tomatoes, warmed artichoke cheese dip, grilled scallops over beans and greens and roasted beets with olive oil.  Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection.  For the main course two people had the scallops, shrimp with the tomato ouzo sauce over Greek noodles.  I make this at home in my own interpretation and it is always a hit.  I had the whole grilled Dorado which is cooked perfectly.  Moist and tasty.  On the side some sauteed spinach with lots of lemon. 

A simple Greek meal.  Couldn’t be better.  I could go back again tonight.
