"The teeny Mandolin Aegean Bistro is housed in a former 1940s home adorned in blue and white; quaintness fills the air as tangibly as the extra-virgin Greek olive oil fills vials on each table. There are just 17 seats indoors, but the outdoor garden patio in back seats twice that number. Mandolin's straightforward cooking is showcased by the a sweet, tender curlicue of grilled octopus misted with the same Mediterranean lubricants. Even chicken kebab, which is usually just menu fodder for timid eaters, turned out to be unexpectedly rousing: five huge, juicy hunks of deliciously grilled white meat enhanced further when dipped into a side dish of tzatziki. Don't miss the Greek salad: large ripe wedges of tomato, cucumber, and green peppers mingled with smaller shots of red onion, capers, and Kalamata olives, the radiant medley grabbing shade under a wide white plank of feta cheese.
