Greek: This iconic Chicago restaurant boasts that it popularized gyros in America, and invented flaming Saganaki cheese with the cry of "Opa!" So you'll have to order the Saganaki, sort of a Greek cheese stick that's crisped by the huge flame. People also like Parthenon because it stays open late, after other Greektown restaurants have shut their doors. The menu includes a host of traditional mezes – try a platter of sausages, liver, sweetbreads, and meatballs, or sample spinach cheese pie. Main selections encompass a delectable roster of lamb, vegetable, potato, and chicken dishes. Try chicken karama, chicken simmered with tomatoes and herbs and served with rice pilafi or okra. The interior features Greek landscapes.
