Yefuri Restaurant

Eparchiaki Odos Frikon - Stavrou

You have to know about this deliciously offbeat restaurant to find it. On a quiet junction high in the green hills of Ithaca, it’s beautifully designed and run by two Londoners: Mark, a former set designer, and Andy, a choreographer-turned-chef. Decked in vintage lampshades and dressers, the cozy dining room feels like someone’s living room; tables outside are in high demand during summer, especially for Sunday brunch (order scrambled eggs with chorizo and warm muffins). The short, ever-changing dinner menu is a welcome break from Greek taverna fare: stir-fried chicken with lime and coconut; build-your-own pizza; calamari tempura served with lettuce, avocado, and mango. Desserts are divine, especially Andy’s lemon tart served with a dollop of Greek yogurt.
