This classic Greek spot has been a fixture in Palo Alto since 1995 and looks straight out of a wine country postcard. Evvia is the sister restaurant to Kokkari Estiatorio, and this place is even better. Like its sibling, power lunchers dominate the daytime scene while families and couples are here during dinner for roasted dishes from the massive hearth—like lemon-oregano rotisserie chicken and souvlaki with red onions and tzatziki. The meat always has a caramelized char, and the juices mix with everything on the plate, creating a combination of citrus, fat, and umami that keeps us coming back.
