Greek food in the United States is a lot more expensive than in Greece, even for staple and simple items, but for the food critics at the New Hampshire Union-Leader, even the price and long wait for service weren't setbacks at Ya Mas.
That's in Pelham, NH, a spot that used to be called Dimitriou's, and now with restaurants coming back even during the lingering COVID-19 pandemic the crowds are too and Ya Mas was packed.
It has changed from more of a family restaurant and diner, billed now as a Greek taverna and bar. “It seems like the kind of Old World restaurant you might find in the middle of a village in the Greek countryside that Rick Steeves would pop into in one of his PBS travelogues,” the review said.
With restaurants finding it hard to recruit help, the wait for appetizers was 30 minutes and for the entrees too, turning the experience into a two-hour affair and costing $94 for two appetizers, two entrees, and a glass of wine.
The live music was too loud too but the food was good, and service friendly.
