For more than two decades, Gardens of Salonica has provided Northeast with a glimpse into Greece, even on the coldest winter's day. Owner Anna Christoforides dances through the restaurant each day, crafting fresh and traditional dishes to her heart's delight — and that of the diners as well. Like any great restaurant, it starts with the ingredients, then is built up with plenty of attention to detail and the flair of a great artist. There are regulars on the menu, like the psito (a leg of lamb seasoned with garlic and herbs) and mousakas (layers of eggplant and pasture-raised ground beef, topped with a cream sauce), along with a constant array of new creations that represent the state of the art in Greek cuisine. And leave space for dessert, whether it's baklava, boughatsa, rizogalo, or any other delicious option.
