There are a number of popular Chicago Greektown restaurants
For more than 20 year, Pegasus (130 South Halsted Street) has been a staple in Greektown in Chicago. The restaurant has been serving up hearty portions of authentic Greek cuisine to locals and tourists alike. Greek treats like spanokopita, dolmades, and oven roasted lamb will keep you coming back for more.
While it's a far cry from starched white linen dining, Greektown Gyros (239 South Halsted Street) offers great food at an affordable price. And despite the name, there is more to the menu than just gyros. The Greektown restaurant also offers burgers, hotdogs and french fries.
Greek Islands (200 South Halsted Street) is another popular Greek restaurant, and it is not just because of the food. In an area where parking can be hard to come by, the free valet parking at this Greektown restaurant is a big draw. Their food is about as authentic as you can get as they import many of their ingredients straight from Greece.
For a lighter fare, try Artopolis Bakery and Café (306 South Halsted Street). This cozy Mediterranean café bakes fresh breads daily, and has a delicious selection of Greek specialties. As the name suggests, this Greektown establishment also has a cafe in addition to the bakery. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the menu offers everything from a delicious parfait of fruit and Greek yoghurt, to traditional Greek salad, to rustic wood fire pizzas.
