One thing that the Boston area does not have much of, is Greek Restaurants.
There are a couple, and the only one that closer matches the definition of a restaurant is Aegean Restaurant, in Watertown, Ma.
Aegean restaurant may be the worst I have seen, and I am not easily disappointed.
Maybe I expected too much, and As a Greek I should demand more from a restaurant that calls itself Greek.
The place was busy when we got there, and I figured that's a good sign.
But I was wrong.
Let me say what the best thing was.
It was the baklava, and if you have to wait until dessert to taste something good, then the cause is lost.
Service wasn't bad, maybe the wait person was new, bad it wasn't the kind that makes you warm and fuzzy all over.
One person of the group absolutely loves shrimp.
She got the shrimp cocktail, which, after taking one bite, she gave the rest to us, to eat.
On the menu it says jumbo shrimp, and they are $16.
Their idea of jumbo, and my idea of jumbo are, Grand Canyon apart.
The taramosalata, was not home made.
I am not positive about it, but it very much tasted like the one available at local Greek grocery stores. The least they can do, is make their own taramosalata.
The fried zucchini, and peppers dish, consisted of three slices of zucchini, and three peppers.
They were not fried, and they are supposed to be.
They presented it on a dish, with the three slices of zucchini on one side, the peppers on the other, and a heaping portion of skordalia, the garlic spread, in the middle.
It's like they were giving it away, that's how much was in there.
The fried calamari was, all three times, we got three of them, two orders initially, and another one 20 minutes later, uninspiring.
All of the calamari appetizers, all of them, had the same issue.
The tentacle part of them were clamped together, and you could see the uncooked batter holding them together.
One of the kids, had the chicken fingers, and found them okay.
I did not try one, so I have no opinion.
The avgolemono soup, was okay, but just okay.
The salmon salad,a salad with a piece of salmon, was described as just okay.
What really got me was the french fries.
A side of fries, with literally, no mire than ten steak fries.
The adults, 6 of us, had no meals, just appetizers, the children, 4 of them, had two soups, and 2 meals, we had a bottle of wine, and 5 drinks.
The bill was over $350 including the tip.
My thinking is this.
The place seems busy, and if the people who eat there, don't mind it, why fix it.
If I ever go back, I plan to return each and every dish that is not done right.
I guess I will have to return all of them.
