[Detroit] New Parthenon in Greektown

With the weather finally warming up after last weekend’s cold spell, my friends and I stepped out for a quick snack in Greektown. We ended up visiting New Parthenon for an early and light dinner.

Of course we started with the Saganaki, a ‘kasseri cheese fried in olive oil, flamed’ according to the menu. Opa!

Opa!

Opa!

It was my first time trying the saganaki, and there’s nothing quite like it. I may need to make it a regular Greektown staple from here on out!

We also had the Greek meatballs (delicious) and the Antipasto plate, which consisted of several dips and sides. We actually had the melitzanosala eggplant dip swapped for the scordalia garlic dip. I wasn’t a huge fan of the taramo–not a big fan of roe or caviar, but the scordalia and sageki (yogurt with garlic, cucumber and celery) were great with the bread. Great place for the afternoon, and great afternoon to wander around the area.
