When the wind is right, when owner Yanni Stavropoulos has the outdoor rotisserie grill fired up, the odor of roasting meat and garlic and wine will draw you from a mile away. Outside Yanni's, you'll see Stavropoulos standing over that grill like a minor laughing spirit from an expurgated chapter of the Iliad -- the Lamb God, bringer of barbecue -- and you'll understand immediately why Greek food is so good. Yanni's offers all the standards -- dolmades, gyros, tzatziki, souvlaki -- and while the lunch menu is good, the lamb and perfectly cooked octopus on the dinner menu are exceptional.

    I like Greek food, but it's never seemed like much of a cuisine to me. Greek food isn't a cuisine because it has no rules. Ask a hundred Greeks how to make tzatziki -- the ubiquitous yogurt and cucumber sauce -- and even though tzat...
