Fodor's Expert Review To Archontiko tou Lekka

$$ Marathon Greek
Meat is what Marathon does well. The city isn't a gastronomic gem, but it has some decent grillhouses. This beautiful stone-built mansion, its wood-beamed ceiling illuminated by dangling chandeliers, is the setting for a popular family-run taverna. The menu is predictably heavy on the animals: pork-neck steaks, fresh-cut ribs, lamb on the spit, and giant skewers all arrive succulent, slightly charred on the edges, and glistening in droplets of fat and oil—as they should. Service is friendly, and as long as you're not vegetarian, this is a really solid choice for a post-museum feed.
