Thirteen friends descended on the Santorini Taverna in Fort Lee, NJ at the foot of the George Washington Bridge last week for the best Greek meal I've had in a long time. Angelo, the owner greeted us like old friends, this was our third visit in as many years. He seated us at a whole bunch of tables pushed together and told us that he had prepared a family-style dinner of seafood, salads and some meat dishes. Wow! Picture three huge platters with sliced tomatoes covered with filets of flounder, ringed with large steamed clams, mussels and huge shrimp and smothered in calamari lightly sauteed in olive oil. Meat dishes comprised of osso bucco with orzo that melted off the huge bone. And, did I mention the lamb chops grilled in garlic and olive oil? The dessert trays came out with baklava interspersed with another sweet wrapped in flaky philo dough. The food just kept on coming and the damage was minimal, just about $55 pp tax and tip included. Thanks Angelo for a memorable meal.
