Piato Estiatorio (Kitsilano)
I love Greek food, and coincidentally, every time I’ve gone to a play or a movie in Kitsilano with my good friend Jason Sanders we have ended up eating Greek food (we went this past spring to see The Wedding Singer at the Jericho Arts Centre and then for dinner to Kerkis Taverna, both in Kitsilano. Jason took me for dinner to Piato Estiatorio as I had wanted to try it for a while, and it was very near by Fifth Avenue Cinemas, where we went to see the Waiting For Superman’s premiere.
We ordered a $25 fixed price menu. I started with an Avgolemono (a chicken soup finished with egg, lemon and dill garnish – not my favorite, but good) as a first course. My main course was a ling cod (pan fried, served with steamed greens and roasted seasonal veggies – this one was my favorite dish). The dessert was Greek yogurt Sundae with candied pecans and grape spoon sweets, which was amazing, I have to admit. I could NOT finish it, sadly.
The service was excellent, and for the prix fixe, we really got good value. Both Jason and I really enjoyed (and thanks Jason for taking me out for dinner!). I’ll probably come back to Piato Estiatorio at some point in the next few months. Good Greek food at reasonable prices, not exorbitant.
