Greek food has grown in popularity in recent years, largely due to the health benefits of a low-fat Mediterranean diet that can reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Fortunately, Greek cuisine is also extremely flavorful with fresh vegetables, seafood, and a unique blend of spices. Los Angeles has a number of excellent Greek restaurants, such as Papa Cristo’s, a neighborhood favorite in the southern part of the city. Papa Cristo’s offers a unique family night on Thursdays and range of tasty meat, seafood, and vegetarian dishes.
Moreover, diners will find tasty options at The Great Greek in Sherman Oaks. Located on Ventura Boulevard, The Great Greek serves traditional dishes, like cognac-flamed saganaki, a cooked cheese dish, and pastitsio, a combination of cheese and pasta. Other favorites like spanakopita and braised lamb dishes are also highlights of the menu.
