  1. Just look at it as an excuse to try one of the other fine Greektown restaurants.

    1. I am a big fan of Samos too. I've made the mistake of heading to Samos a couple of times only to discover that I had forgotten that Sunday is the only day they are closed. You certainly get the best food for your dollar there. JohParker is right about having an excuse to try other Greek places. I know first hand that Ikaros if pretty good and I've been wanting to try Zorbas and Souvalki Place too.

        Had a truly amazing meal with friends at Zorba's last night. I've been there tons of times, but last night really stood out. And, my friends had recently returned from Greece. They said that the grilled octopus was better than they had at some island or other.....Very different from Samos, but very much worth checking out!

          I love the octopus at Zorba's and it is better than some I've had in Greece. Kali's Court has great octopus as well, but is much pricier.

            I absolutely love fried and grilled calamari. I order grilled calamari frequently when I'm having Greek food. I have not tried grilled octopus. Is it similar to grilled calamari? I'm going to have to try it.

              Similar, yet different. Only the tentacles are used generally.
