We are feeling torn over what to mention first when writing about lunch at Greek Bites Grill and Café in Mattituck. The perfect Greek salad dressing? Or the yummy homemade spinach pie.

In this week edition of “What’s For Lunch?” we recommend the spinach pie lunch special ($9.95) at this recently opened Main Road takeout joint.

The pie, made of phyllo dough, spinach, feta, scallions, onions and egg, is made in-house and comes with a salad or soup and pita bread. The soups are a solid option, but we wouldn’t suggest passing up on a Greek salad.

The hearty pie was mighty good comfort food on this particularly cold and icy North Fork week. And the house dressing, though simple, is my idea of a perfect salad topping.

Lunch specials like the spinach pie are offered Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and range from $8.50 to $9.95. The portions are ample for the price, which make a good lunch for Mattituck worker bees like us toiling away at Times/Review headquarters.

Greek Bites has long been a solid takeout option for those living in the Moriches area, which is not exactly known for its varied dining options.

It’s worth repeating how welcome ethnic lunch options are on the North Fork, where you couldn’t even order sushi a few years ago.

Located in a unit that in recent years has housed two short-lived eateries, Bahia and Big City Burgers, we wish owners Spiro and Dimitra Laopodis family well.

Now can we get an Indian takeout joint? Or a Korean barbecue spot?

One can dream.
