Across the Mill Street Bridge that connects Port Chester to Byram is an eatery offering traditional Hellenic fare — the warm pita, the creamy spreads, gyro, souvlaki  — done with a deft, CIA-trained hand.    

Chef Steve Karipides, along with sisters Maria and Sophia who manage the front-of-the-house, run this Fairfield County restaurant their father John started in 1984.
