The tissue-thin pastry dough is the wrapper for Manhattan's best spanakopita ($4), plump with spinach and feta. With your first bite, it sheds a multitude of golden shards; best you stand upwind.
Previously: A "menina mash" ($4) encased spinach, potatoes, carrots, and (too subtle for my palate) chicory. The tiropita (not shown; $2.75) blended feta with ricotta, and just a little mint, in a phyllo triangle. Grainier than I expected; needed just a hint more mint. A frogera (fro-Yeah-ruh; biteaway view; $3.50) was a fat phyllo roll filled with milk custard, crushed nuts, and a little honey; thankfully, it wasn't overly sweet.
