Now you can enjoy Atlanta’s Taste of Greece the way Greeks do - surrounded by warm hospitality.

  • The bounty of the Mediterranean finds its way to our Festival tables, complemented by light fresh white wines, or complex reds.
  • Some of the best olive oil on the planet comes from the olives cultivated in Greece for millennia.  
  • World-class cheeses - like mizithra, feta and haloumi - top pasta dishes and Greek salads or are flambéed as saganaki.
  • Many meals start with “mezze” - small bites of delightful appetizers meant to pair with lighter wines or aperitifs.
  • For big family feasts, Sunday dinner, and village festivals, you’ll find that the acidity of lemon, oregano and garlic balance the richness in chicken, lamb, and vegetable dishes.
  • One of today’s most popular “street” foods are the Gyro and Souvlaki - served wrapped in a pita with toppings, or freshly skewered on a stick.
  • And we cannot forget dessert.  Or an afternoon cup of sweet Greek coffee and some pastries.
