Greek Food - Summit, NJ

NYC1236 Apr 6, 2011 12:29 PM

I am a new Summit resident who is in desperate need of good Greek food!
I have been to Greek Delights in Montclair, but it's a little far. Any suggestions?

    There is a greek restaurant in Highland Park. That would be far from Summit though.

      we like taximi in caldwell. There is a good Greek restaurant in Westfield, but the name escapes me. In long branch, niko's is good if you are at the shore.

          Don't think you're going to find authentic Greek in Summit, but I'll +1 Rosie's suggestion of Stamna. TERRIFIC food, great vibe, easy off the GSP!

          Stamna is very good. Wait till it warms up soon and eat outside!

            Unfortunately, NYC, there is no good Greek to be had without traveling at least 1/2 hour from Summit. The suggestions from the other posters are all good, but you will have to travel.

              I think the greek restaurant in westfield is limani. I agree that nyc has some good greek places-- milos, molyvos, etc.

                A lot of the diners around Summit are probably Greek-owned, so you may be able to find Moussaka at one of them. Granted, it's not the full Greek experience, but it might do in a pinch.

                For instance, at the Scotchwood Diner on Rt. 22 East in Scotch Plains, they have Pastichio, Souvlaki, Moussaka, Gyros, Spanakopita, etc. Even "assorted Greek pastries" for dessert.

                  OMG! The gyros at these diners are dreck - more like sliced lamb sausage, fresh from the freezer. I so desperately want a fresh mixed grill with a little salad on the side. Please let's not confuse greek food with diners owned by people of greek descent.

                The Greek Store, on the Boulevard in Kenilworth has great take-home treats.

                    Is it any good? What do you get when you go there? I go by there frequently and have thought about stopping, but most of the time Greek food in greek diners is sub-par IMHO.

                      Boonton is a bit too far for a Sumit resident.

                      Years ago in Chicago, ALL diners were Greek diners - - the cooks were all Greek.

                    Not a huge menu selection, but terrific Moussaka, Pastitsio, and Spanakopita. Good souvlaki & gyros too.

                      +1 for Limani's in Westfield. They have very good Greek fish and seafood.
