At Helen in the Heights, chef William Wright’s menu delivers dishes that most Americans associate with Greek cuisine, like fried calamari, feta-braised chicken, and gyros made with a mixture of beef and lamb. The wine list offers affordable options with all vintages available by the glass and no bottles priced over $75.  Just be sure and save room for dessert; the ice cream machine serves up a bourbon baklava flavor that’s guaranteed to become one of this city's sweetest treats.
