    Three words: Get the lamb. It’s marvelous and the best lamb that Fiona, our Community Lead, has ever had.

    Consistently one of the best/busiest places in the Bay Area. Give these a go: octapodaki, arnisia paidakia, moussaka, souvlaki. Make a reservation well in advance. NB: sister of Kokkari in SF.

    i prefer the lamb shank to the lamb chops just because they are more moist. crab cakes / mussels are good too
