Christakis? beautiful setting separates the eatery from its local Greek brothers-in-grub, but what truly catapults the place into Orange County?s high-class dining strata are the platters of its late eponymous founder, Joanne Christakis Wallace. You?ll find the standards of Greek restaurants: bitter spanakopita spinach pies, starchy moussaka casseroles, lamb prepared in more ways than there are actual lamb cuts and a thorough selection of seafood. More impressive is an array of pasta dishes that suggests an Italian influence at some point in Christakis? seven-year existence.
