It’s a family affair (plus one) at Zorba’s Taverna (4801 Linton Blvd., 561/381-7411), the artsy new Greek restaurant newly opened at the corner of Linton Boulevard and Military Trail in West Delray.
The father and son chef team of Taso and Bobby Orfanos and Big Apple lawyer-turned-restaurateur Bill Maxakoulis have put together a menu of familiar Greek dishes, served up in a crisp-looking, white and blue-accented space notable for the white marble table tops and large murals of Zorba the Greek and the island of Santorini by local artist Henry J. There also an outdoor patio and live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
Both Orfanos Senior and Junior have some real culinary chops, with Senior a 30-year vet of the New York dining scene and, most recently, top toque and Mykonos in Boca, and Junior formerly exec chef at Taverna Opa in West Palm and consultant to Todd English’s (now defunct) pair of Wild Olives eateries.
You won’t miss out on any Greek culinary classics here, from starters of taramosalata, spanakopita and dolmas to entrees like moussaka, roasted leg of lamb and a variety of kebobs and desserts like rice pudding and a trio takes on the baklava theme. Opa!
