It's Greek to me at Axios Estiatorio

It was a sad day for Francophiles in this city when Brasserie Felix shut its doors on Tennyson Street. The charming French bistro served, among other things, one of our favorite renditions of coq au vin. But when it folded, it left a prime piece of real estate on a busy block, so it didn't take long for another restaurateur to move in.

Telly Topakas took over the address last year, and the restaurant veteran quickly got to work building Axios Estiatorio, a slightly upscale Greek place -- or sort of Greek place, since Topakas hired Royce Oliveira, a novice of Greek cuisine, to head the kitchen, giving him the freedom to make his own twists and changes.

For this week's review, I stopped by Axios, soaking in the neighborhood vibe, while eating my way through the list of traditional -- and not-so-traditional -- dishes Oliveira created.

How was the food? Find out tomorrow, when the review is posted here.
