The air is filled with the tantalizing aroma of barbecue and meats roasting over an open fire. You’ll find our usual crowd-pleasers like our famous moussaka, souvlaki, roasted lamb shanks, gyro, calamari, pastitsio and many other savory dishes including a wide variety of vegetarian selections. Shop at our Greek agora, which features ethnic jewelry, pottery, clothing and food items. Greek dancers from all over the Bay Area will be dressed in traditional costumes and performing a variety of folk dances that have been handed down for hundreds of years.
