Those who want simple luncheonette fare can have a BLT, a burger or a grilled cheese sandwich. But there are more interesting ethnic enticements, like an appetizer of spinach pie or taramaslata (roe dip). A ground lamb and beef gyro sandwich or a pork souvlaki sandwich is available on pita bread stuffed with lettuce, tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce. There are also platters, such as moussaka or pastitsio, as well as an array of kebobs.

Dessert might be baklava or galactobourico (vanilla custard in phyllo), that is if the meal is to be concluded in a properly Greek fashion.
