If you want a friendly Hellenic experience near Hancock Park, family-owned Le Petit Greek in Larchmont Village is still going strong after 30 years. With some of the best Mediterranean cuisine in Los Angeles, its signature baby rack of lamb with garlic and rosemary is perfection, as is the arnisio kotsi, lamb shank braised in Dionysian wine sauce. A personal favorite is the gyro pizza — gyro meat, tomatoes, mozzarella, feta, red onion and oregano on flatbread — and there's a huge selection of Greek wine to go with it. Perfect pairing for dessert: house-made baklava and an Achaia Clauss moscato. For lunch we love the incredible gyro selection and the Elliniko piato, or Greek plate, a combination of moussaka, lemon chicken, spanakopita, hummus, tzatziki and house-made pita. Owners Tom and Dimitri Houndalas have created a beautiful white and green dining room dotted with baskets of lemons reminiscent of the Greek Isles. The walls are covered with black-and-white photos of Greece. Opa! —Michele Stueven
