Feta. Fresh fish. Chicken. Lamb. Grape leaves. Nothing says heaven more than a quality platter of Greek food. NOTHING. Fortunately, here on Long Island, though we’re not on Cyprus, we can still enjoy Greek cuisine done just how mama and poppa prepared it back home. Best of L.I. voters rounded out the very, very best for us all. Halloumi.
