Greek place across from Ferdinand's in Wheaton

I was having a quick dinner with the family at Supporn's Thai in Wheaton and was leaving around dusk and noticed that there was a sign at the place across from Ferdinand's Restaurant for a Greek place. I didn't quite get the name.

Anyone know anything about it?

  1. There's a place across the street that's been closed for a while in a sort of old-timey building. The sign has some funny x's on it--is that what you mean? I don't think it was ever a Greek place.

      Yes, that's the one I am referring to. There is a new sign saying coming soon.

    2. are you talking about the building that used to be a Sir Walter Raleigh's Inn?

      1. Alekos Taverna, in the old Sir Walter Raleigh. Had great spanakopita and dolmos a few years back. Old Washingtonian review: http://www.washingtonian.com/articles...

        1. I saw the sign too, its new (the sign, not the location). Saw no sign of activity. Good Greek would be welcome.

          1. Hey folks, just wanted to let you know that I was up in the area last week and there seems to be movement at the new greek place. I will be in the area today so I will see if any progress has been made.

              There is a new sign up, the building looks like it's had a coat of paint and they've registered a web page but not much info yet. tavernakefi.com

                I was by there last night and there is an open for dinner sign...5pm. Lunch offering will come soon.

                I may check it out within the next week.
