The portions at this Mediterranean spot are large enough that getting takeout might throw off the balance of a small moped - you could easily split one thing between two people and have a full meal. The shawerma is somehow larger than a burrito, but is lighter from the onion, cucumbers, and tomato salad it’s loaded with. The mezza platter is also solid, and if you feel like veering away from health for a minute, so are the za’atar fries.

Come to Kokkari Estiatorio in the Financial District to feel like a big shot. Maybe even throw on a suit and tie. It's a Greek temple of lamb.

Nopalito in Nopa always leaves us wanting more. We can’t shake the feeling that it’s aiming higher, and missing.
