Fodor's Review

Egyptian spice infuses Greek cuisine with an exotic, eclectic, and dynamic menu at this popular restaurant in a restored neoclassical building, making for a spot that Lawrence Durrell would truly relish. The choices include simple but stunning fare such as a tomato salad with thick yogurt and caramelized onions as well as a tender lamb cooked with dried plums and apricots, and veal with vegetables and couscous. If you're an adventurous foodie, don't miss Alexandria's signature dish: tender, wine-simmered baby octopus on a creamy bed of fava. The wine list is extensive and well priced; the Om Ali dessert with warm chocolate and nuts is a dream come true; and the service is happy and welcoming. The relaxing, clean-white interior design recalls the cosmopolitan flair of the Egyptian Greeks.
