Don't let the modest name fool you; Chris' Pizza's simple storefront opens to a bright interior painted, plastered and "plastiqued" in the blue and white of the Greek islands. The effect is a comfortable mix of ethnic elegance and classy American kitsch that resonated in both the decor and the food. Try the mousaka, layers of eggplant and meat topped with a creamy bechamel sauce, or the avgolemono soup with lemon chicken-and-egg broth. Don't leave without trying a slice of Chris' pizza and its mid-thick crust; there's a reason it's a part of the namesake.
