Greek Food in Ffld County?

  • 9

OK now that Ambrosia is gone, any suggestions, maybe some places I dont know of?
I know about Eos in Stamford but would prefer something more casual.

Please note I am looking for a restaurant that serves Greek food exclusively, not a diner with processed meat gyros or a pizza place that serves that greasy foamy heavy on the oregano excuse for pizza.

I am heartbroken about Ambrosia. *sniff*

  1. I have not been, but someone recommended this place to me

    The menu looks interesting, definitely a very casual spot...

      Interesting menu, but certainly not what OP was asking for; "a restaurant that serves Greek food exclusively." Xenia, has a mix of Greek, Italo-American, Turkish, Kobe Beef, Planked Salmon all made with Mediterranean influences.

      After calling and asking a few questions, my best guess is that the proprietors are of Turkish heritage.

      Somehow, I don't think OP is looking for a place that serves Chicken Francese, Pasta Carbonara or Veal Osso Bucco.

        Sorry, just trying to pass along useful information. The person who recommended it told me they had great greek food.

          unfortunately there hasn't been great Greek food in southern CT since the 70s.

            OP wanted something more casual, tho I don't think of Eos as that unrelaxed. Methinks she is looking for a twin she's probably not going to find in FFD Ct. So great excuse to drive to the one and only Astoria...

              Have a feeling I will be making a lot of trips over the Whitestone ;)
              Balgelman -I just need to let you know that pasta carbonara, for whatever reason is very popular in restaurants in Greece. I ordered it once there just to get a dose of fat into my system all the healthy food was starting to bore me!
