"Look for the wings," a friend said as I prepared to drive down to Pegasus. Sure enough, the appendages of the winged horse glow in yellow neon. On a Saturday night at nine my group of 13 was able to walk right in and be seated. Service was speedy--even a little pushy, in fact, but I suppose such a large party does need to have the whip cracked. Everyone enjoyed the dishes, from a fava dip, cheese phyllo squares, and salads to a gyros platter, Athenian chicken, and arni yuvetsaki (lamb baked in a clay pot with orzolike Rosa Marina pasta and a red wine sauce). We sampled widely from the large menu, which features a good selection of both hot and cold mezedes suitable for small-plate dining. In the warm months Pegasus offers the added attraction of a rooftop patio with a first-class view of downtown's skyline.
