MP Taverna [brunch] (Irvington, NY)

I have been really looking forward to checking out MP Taverna. It’s less than an hour away from Manhattan on Metro North and is conveniently located right by the Irvington train station. Sweet. We’re celebrating a birthday of a very special friend — and what better way to do that than with lots of delicious Greek eats and a boatload of sangria! Since there were seven of us, we were able to order tons of food and sample so many different dishes from the octopus to the grilled branzino. I have heard great things about Chef Michael Psilakis’ octopus — it was absolutely delicious! So incredibly tender and flavorful. I also loved the trio of dips, the skillet-baked eggs, dumplings, branzino, and crab croquettes. So much good food all around! Next time, I’ll be back for dinner. :)
