Ikaros, Samos and Zorba's
When I first moved here, everyone went to Ikaros and the lines went out the door. Then somehow over the years the must-go label shifted to Samos, I'm not sure how. But Ikaros still has its loyal supporters.
And then there's the Zorba's faction. These aficionados insist that to go anywhere else for grilled lamb chops or whole fish just doesn't make sense. ...
These three restaurants all made it into the latest Zagat Survey, but there must be other worthy places in Greektown when they are too busy and all you want is some moussaka and a glass of wine. Over the years various restaurants with names like "The Acropolis" have come and sometimes gone.
What started me thinking about all this was an e-mail from Michelle that said:
I have never eaten at any of the restaurants in Greektown. I don't see any specific links to Greek restaurants on your page. I know that the conversations have encompassed Greek restaurants before but I don't know which ones they were.
Maybe a poll on which one of the three is better? Ha ha. Just kidding. Or you can post below. And we would like info on any others you've tried in Greektown besides the big three.
