Greek specialties. His Steak Aspria done in a special marinade of fine

his own touch to almost every dish, and willingly comes to your table to
share the details with those who ask. Even his Tzaziki has his own

customers who come especially for his fried Calamari. The menu includes
a Souvlaki Pita for children ($8.95).
Please note: The photo of the dish

of the Aspria Beef Steak that Dimitri added for me to taste.
