Fodor's Expert Review Elia Restaurant
$$$ Bay Ridge Greek
Something of a Bay Ridge secret, Elia has been serving refined Greek delicacies in the neighborhood since 1998. The menu features grilled meat, fish, and seafood, as well as traditional casseroles and appetizers, all prepared with innovative touches: grilled shrimp, for example, are served with pomegranate couscous and avgolemono (egg-lemon sauce), and tender homemade ravioli are filled with braised lamb. The lamb shank baked in a clay pot with orzo is always a good bet.
