Souvlaki GR in the LES

So last night me and the boothang were in the LES looking for some Mediterranean food and what should we spy but souvlaki GR.  So in we went and it was like being teleported into to the photos of Santorini Greece. It was a a small space as are almost all NYC restaurants.  They even had a patio that was draped in bougainvillaea. The menu was short and straightforward which is how it should be.  We started with the tzatziki and pita, and it was made with the Greek yogurt and cucumbers thick and creamy.  I ordered the chicken souvlaki and Mr. ordered the veggie pita.  The chicken I think could have been cooked a bit more as I didn’t feel it was cooked all the way.  It was juicy and very flavorful and came with a side of warmed pita bread.  Mr boothang said the veggie pita was great (but it looked mostly like pita lol).  Of course what meal isn’t complete with out dessert!  Of course the offer loukamadies with honey and nuts, I died.  I noticed that they even offered frappes with Bailey’s (which if you have ever hung with a Greek this is a staple of all table fare).   The service was friendly but slow as there was only three servers and no one followed up with us to see how we were doing other than the busboy.  Overall 3.5 put of 5 forks just because of the service but def a most go.
