BarFly's Review of Alexis
Never quite emphasizing their lounge as something separate from the sprawling restaurant — they haven't a happy hour nor, seemingly, a bartender some weeknight — an ownership apoplectic about the crude Bacchanalia swamping the foot of West Burnside each weekend won't be catering to the bar-crawl trade any time soon. But it would be a mistake to downplay the importance of alcohol to the Alexis' time-honored pleasures. This sort of family dining presumes bottomless ouzo at hand. Flagship enterprise of a family importing business that introduced staple Greek delicacies to Puddletown, the minimal décor and traditionalist menu has lingered essentially unaltered the past three decades for a reason, and stopping by for drinks alone would make as little sense as requesting a private belly-dance. Alexis harkens back to a bygone era of nightlife whose regulars preferred an elongated sampling of familiar comforts to chasing about specialist cuisine or the cocktails of the moment. As gateway to an increasingly mislabeled Old Town, the Alexis' reluctance to change should prove temptation enough for the curious patron, and complaints over culinary conservatism rather miss the point. One doesn't visit Athens for the skyline.
Open for Monday-Friday 11:30am-2pm for lunch, 5pm-10pm for dinner, and Saturday and Sunday 5pm-11pm for dinner.
