Nestled away from the hustle and bustle in charming, village-like West Portal, Orexi offers a future-perfect twist on the classic Greek taverna. The long, narrow space, with its rustic wood beams, wood furnishings, and oversized mirrors, has a contemporary vibe that contrasts nicely with the homey food. The lunch menu is full of light, yet satisfying dishes, like a Greek salad packed with crunchy cucumber, ripe tomato, and tangy feta. A juicy, well-seasoned lamb burger is topped with goat cheese, tomato, and crunchy red onion. Heartier fare includes moussaka, slow-braised lamb shank with orzo, and lamb chops among the options. Be sure to sample the kataifi, a baklava-like phyllo pastry filled with chopped toasted almonds.
