Greek Food Portland ME

Does anyone know if a new Greek restaurant opened in the Portland area? It is supposed to be new and not in the old Port area. Does anyone know about this? How is the food?

  1. It's called, "Emilitsa," it's on Congress St. about 4 doors east of 555, and it opened in February. I think there are some Chow reviews. I ate there about a month ago, and found it very agreeable: limited menu (thus far), and pricey-er than most typical Greek restaurants. Don't think they have a website up yet. They have a very interesting all-Greek wine list.

      I ate there about a month ago and was very pleased. We didn't order a whole lot, not being too hungry, but everything was tasty and well prepared: the tzatziki and humous were very good, an eggplant app, too. Their pastitsio is also excellent. I love the decor, very stripped down and elegant, and the wine list is very interesting. They don't do gyro or souvlaki ; evidently, they don't do street food, which is why it's pricier than the typical American Greek place. That said, I found the prices very reasonable. Oh, and the pita! Mmm.
