Inconspicuous amid the glut of Persian restaurants in Westwood's Persian Square, Delphi Greek has been quietly serving up rustic Greek cuisine since 1985. The long, cavernous space has the look of a humble joint you might just stumble upon along the cobblestone streets of Molyvos. Delphi's extensive menu lists all your favorites, including the show-stopping flambéed cheese appetizer known as saganaki. The beef and lamb gyro carved from the vertical spit is deeply comforting when paired with tart tzatziki (cucumber- and garlic-inflected yogurt sauce). Just like in Greece, the souvlaki (marinated skewers of meat) can be had in both pork and lamb varieties. This is one of the few Greek restaurants where you can get a gyro and feta cheese omelette for a filling breakfast. If you're slightly adventurous, the taramasalata, briny red caviar whipped with lemon juice and loads of garlic, is the delicious seafaring cousin to your standard, humdrum hummus. The hearty pastitsio, composed of toothsome pasta layered with seasoned ground beef and topped with a pungent feta cheese and béchamel mixture, is the Greek take on lasagna. Delphi is a wonderful change of pace from the litany of Persian kebab joints in Westwood. The Greek coffee is strong and bitter with a welcome, subtle earthiness, which pairs perfectly with a bite, or three, of baklava packed with minced walnuts and drenched in honey syrup. —Kayvan Gabbay
