For great people-watching without the worry of bare feet dancing tabletop next to your appetizer, pay a visit to the sleek new Trata Greek Taverna on Las Olas Boulevard. The upscale eatery has several tables outside on a romantically lit covered patio, along with a dozen tables and a chic bar inside. The menu is loaded with traditional favorites from the motherland, starting with appetizers such as grilled baby squid, marides (AKA pan-fried smelts), and everybody's favorite flaming saganaki cheese. Entrées include paidakia (lamb chops soaked for 24 hours in garlic, olive oil, and herbs, then grilled), stifado (a Greek beef stew made with braised short ribs), and ortikia (charbroiled whole baby quails served with lemon potatoes).
