Fodor's Expert Review Athens on 4th Avenue

$$ The University of Arizona Greek

The tranquil dining room in this Greek spot off 4th Avenue is furnished with lace curtains, white stucco walls, and potted plants. Enjoy classics like kotopoulo stin pita (grilled chicken breast with a yogurt-cucumber sauce on fresh pita), moussaka, or the pastitsio (a casserole made with pasta, meat, and béchamel). The house favorite is braised lamb shoulder in a light tomato sauce over pasta or potatoes—call to reserve your order of the lamb ahead of time. The housemade lemon cheesecake will melt in your mouth.
