The last great memory I have of barbecued fish was in an ocean-front town on the coast of Portugal.

However, the wood grilled Lavraki at Taverna Kyma comes close. Sitting on the covered patio enjoying Boca's balmy breezes,  I savored every bite of this imported white fish barbecued in lemon and olive oil. After an antipasto of dolmades (stuffed grape leaves), pita with tzatziki (greek yogurt with cucumber) and hummus, and homemade spanikopita, I was pleasantly full, but the fish was the perfect light bite to end the meal.

Treat yourself to the authentic Greek food at this chef-owned restaurant.

The flavors of all the dishes --from braised lamb shank to fresh stuffed red peppers-- will remind you of the Mediterranean and keep you coming back for more.
