    Major problem with Kokoras, no parking whatsoever.

    Anyone know why Ephesus does not make use of their large back yard with views? Is it restricted because of the neighbors? Seems silly to put tables on California and not make the back an outdoor dining garden…

    I lived in WS for eleven years now and the first couple of them, I never even knew that was a restaurant. You’d like for people to see that you’re busy when they drive by, so I think that’s one of the reasons they have tables in the front. But an option to sit in a great setting is always a plus.

    Ye gods! Zeus or (insert Turkish equivalent here) will surely strike dead the Stranger food writer for overblown hypebole in cultural comparisons! But the food descriptions are right on, made me hungry to read.

    As I was having a sidewalk-adjacent lunch at Easy Street yesterday, I was wondering: where are all of West Seattle’s outdoor dining/drinking spots? Are there many beyond Alki?

    Keith, No one wants to drink outdoors in the Junction and snort fumes from cars while they wait idle for the light to turn green. Maybe some people may like it. I don’t think anyone has anyroom to do so anyways.

    Kokoros looks so unassuming from the outside that I didn’t bother to go there for ages, although I love Greek food. I was delighted when I finally made it in, though, by the delightful warmth of the staff, and oh! the gyros! The veggies were delicious as well. Can’t wait to go back.

    As for parking, so you might have to walk a hundred yards. It’s good for you!

    Kokoras is tasty! My favorite new place. I’ve never had trouble finding street parking…

    I agree w/Jessie. I love this place. And than you can go across the street to the Corner or Beveridge for a drink.

    Jiggers – parking in the park go down the alley. Have to walk through the kitchen. Or get a to-go menu and pick it up. 30 min parking right infront.

Sorry, comment time is over.
