From Our Editors
With a small spark and a cry of "Opa!" Greek brandy ignites, causing flames to erupt from a pan of kefalotyri cheese. But the theatrical saganaki presentation is deceiving—GreekTown Kitchen & Wine Bar is decidedly laid-back. From its airy interior featuring repurposed mason-jar chandeliers to its menu of homestyle Mediterranean cooking, the taverna invites guests to sit back and relax.

The Ingredients' Origins
Chefs bring in many ingredients from Greece, such as barrel-aged feta, mountain-grown oregano, and cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil. These imported ingredients lend their distinctive flavors to entrees that showcase locally raised Alberta lamb, pork, and free-range chicken. To complement these succulent dishes, the menu features a selection of red and white Greek wines.
