Restaurants - Greek
Greek restaurants, either small or large, are known for their boisterous environment. Greek restaurants outside Greece serve either well-known dishes like moussaka and baklava, or the very health-conscious Greek dishes like grilled seafood and spare vegetables. Greek restaurants focus on freshness, with their specific Greek style, including the use of olive oil, fresh-baked crusty breads, Greek cheeses and wines, fresh fruits and vegetables, lentils and beans, Greek favorites such as oregano, dill, garlic, and lemon. Greek restaurants usually have a good selection of appetizers from which to choose-an integral part of the Greek dining experience. Greek restaurants have staff either professionals (Greek or not) or family members, who describe dishes, recommend combinations of foods, and answer questions. Some Greek restaurants may have an understated glamour while others are lavishly decorated to look like Greek landscapes.
