By Steven Crook Translated by Cara Steenstra

John Charlesworth and Carolyn Chen--the people behind the original Bagel Bagel--are the creators of this spacious new Greek-themed restaurant. John has loved Greek food since childhood, because he grew up in a Toronto neighborhood with a large Greek population. With his Greek dishes he strives for authenticity, and he especially recommends the rissoles. He's also proud of the bruschetta--originally an Italian dish, but, John adds, "We've made it Greek." There are more than a hundred items on the menu. Hot appetizers are priced NT$160 to NT$220; cold appetizers start at NT$60. Soups and salads go for NT$80 or so; main dishes are also very affordable at around NT$200. The business lunch is NT$150. There are several vegetarian options, and take-out orders are 20 percent cheaper. The front of the restaurant has a seaside, daytime feel; the rear is more "nighttime," with decor inspired by Greek mythology. Upstairs there is a gallery area for exhibitions, and soon a lounge area for coffees and meals will be opened. --By Steven Crook, translated by Cara Steenstra
