The musician standing on the stage in a white blazer with an electric keyboard and a hand-held microphone is part of an eclectic Middle Eastern folk binge Saturday nights at Café Annie. This is the only evening that Annie is open.
An oasis of authenticity, complete with odd decorations, exhilaratingly exotic smells and hearty but inexpensive meals. You’ll find perfect hummus, superior kibbeh and superb gyros, not to mention one of the best spinach pies around. A top spot to eat for $10 or less.
Olea, a fresh-casual Greek joint, is part of the new breed of quick eateries bent on made-from-scratch offerings and superior customer service. Start with grape leaves imported from Greece and end with heavenly baklava from Hellas Bakery in Tarpon Springs – in between, take your pick from rice or couscous bowls, salad bowls or pita sandwiches. The trick is to temper your desire to top your bowl (or stuff your pita) with any and all available items.
A particularly good restaurant to try late at night when your group can't agree on what to eat. The American fare is well-executed visit after visit, but Greek is what's interesting here. Standouts include the spanakopita, pastitsio and dolmades.
The view of the downtown skyline is spectacular from this nook on Orange Avenue across from Lake Ivanhoe. Dining outside is a must, as is the hearty meze platter, with a sampling of enough Greek speicalties-baked feta, gyro meat, braised lamb and traditional salads melitzanosalat and taramosalata-to satisfy the gods on Mount Olympus.

Head into this hole in the wall for the superbly seasoned fried chicken-everyone else does. But the lamb gyros, stuffed grape leaves, hummus, falafel and other Syrian/Greek standbys are just as worthy. Prices are dirt-cheap.
