Avlee is a Greek spot in Carroll Gardens, and it’s where you should go on a Tuesday night when you need souvlaki. The space is pretty plain, with a bunch of hanging light bulbs and two-person tables, but the menu is surprisingly huge. You can stop by and choose from some grilled meats, a lot of seafood, and a bunch of smaller things like spanikopita and chickpea fritters. This probably isn’t the place to bring a date (until you hit date 100), but if you need a spot to catch up with a friend, it’s great for that.
