The Burger Guru, a staple for cheap burgers on 98 Berry Street in Williamsburg, quietly closed earlier this year. In its place is a new Greek tapas restaurant called Ela Taverna. The owners updated the decor a tad, but have kept the space fairly minimal. The menu features Greek staples like Moussaka, Spanakopita and Grilled Octopus. They are open 4:30pm-11pm daily.

If Petra’s living room-style decor, extensive beer list, and eclectic arsenal of wines aren’t enough to keep the bar full of curious patrons, guests should definitely drop by for the food. Petra’s menu is chock-full of unlikely—but truly delicious—flavor combinations like charred broccoli with strawberry rhubarb, beets with cherry tomatoes and taleggio, and an exotic octopus dish with turnip, lentils, and peas just to name a few.
Petra is open 5pm – 1am Tuesday through Sunday.
