New and Notable: Opa

Just when you thought there wasn’t room for another restaurant at the white-hot nexus of 13th and Sansom streets, along comes this stylish Greek spot. The moody-meets-Mediterranean room is dominated by a central bar, which serves up smart cocktails (try the lemony Antho, a crisp dill and vodka sipper) to pair with tasty small plates like saganaki or a trio of adorable mini lamb gyros tucked into waxed paper. Chef Andrew Brown offers larger plates as well (braised rabbit, Creek Stone Farms rib-eye), but it’s hard to resist the snackability of the mezides.
