Quick Bite

Kyma Greek Cuisine

This Somerville eatery has Greek murals and traditional foods from land and sea.

24 East Main Street, Somerville

Style: Bustling downtown eatery offering traditional Greek dishes, including seafood. A seaside palette and paintings of Greek landscapes add to the Aegean illusion.

Mon-Thurs, 11 am-10 pm; Fri and Sat, 11 am-11 pm; Sun, noon-9 pm

Price: $$

Don’t Miss: Seafood is a Kyma specialty, with attractions like Xristos Scallops served with asparagus risotto ($22) and Shrimp Santorini baked in ouzo-infused tomato sauce ($18). Our server, pointing out his favorites, suggested Xristos Oysters baked in dill, garlic, spinach and ouzo with kefalograviera, a traditional cheese ($14), and Octopadi, grilled octopus served with white beans, tomatoes, fennel, red onions and arugula in a citrus vinaigrette ($17). Worthy traditional appetizers include keftedes, ground beef and veal meatballs with yogurt sauce ($8), and spanakopita, a baked phyllo dough stuffed with spinach, leeks and feta.

Heads Up: Entrée portions are large, so go easy on appetizers. The complimentary serving of pita and hummus is generous, too—and good.

The Scoop: Although Kyma is BYO, it has an arrangement with Old York Cellars in nearby Ringoes to sell its wines.

What are Quick Bites? Short takes on casual, affordable dining.
