I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

You may hear saganaki and think a showy flaming plate of cheese complete with shouts of “Opa!” There is not quite as much of a visual show at Pylos, but the version here is about as good as it gets. Three tangy Greek cheeses are cooked in a clay pot until melted and rich. Squeeze some lemon and scoop some pita. Or just eat it with a fork! Price: $12
