You’ll find the largest Greek wine list in the US at this sleek Back Bay restaurant and wine bar. Leave the bottle or by-the-glass selections to the knowledgeable bartenders while you snack on top-notch taramosalata, dolmas that come with a bone marrow yogurt, and perfectly tender plates of grilled octopus. The charcuterie menu is way more interesting than what your friend puts together when you come over to watch Real Housewives (we still love you, though, Judith): two standouts are octopus mortadella and noumboulo made from whole pork tenderloin. Check out the speakeasy cocktail bar out back if you want to make a night of it.
