Koukouzeli is a casual Greek spot in the Italian Market, and it’s open for both lunch and dinner. We like it more for lunch, where you can stop by and grab a gyro pita for $9 that’s better than whatever you get from your favorite street cart. They also have a bunch of mezze dishes like dolmades and kolokithia, and in case it matters to you, there are plenty of vegan options too.
