There are numerous Greek restaurants within a few blocks. Also we have enjoyed visiting the museum that deals with the experience the Greeks had coming to America. Also there are some Greek souvenir shop.

As someone that loves Greek food, I've spent a lot of time in this area. Having had a business and a home just a few blocks away for many years, Greektown is a place we went often. The food is authentic, the choices plentiful, and one of a group of well enjoyed Greek restaurants. If you have the chance, be... More

We went to Greektown for the festival. Great band, great food and wonderful people. Although the Greeks have mostly moved out of Greektown the restaurants are wonderful and the nightlife fun and exciting. We didn't have a chancer to visit the museum, but it was highly recommended.

Every time I come back to Greektown it gets better and better. Cleaner, safer and more modern restaurant and retail stores are opened here. The only thing that goes the other direction is parking. It is harder to find free parking on the street and parking garages are getting more expensive.

If so, you'll want to head to Greektown in Chicago for some of the best Greek food this side of the Mediterranean.

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Greek Islands restaurant. It was delicious! The Village Greek Salad was fantastic! I had the roast loin of lamb and friends had the Pastitsio and the Sampler Plate -- all equally delicious! And, the greatest celebrity sighting -- Woody Allen and his lovely wife were lunching there, too!

If you are a Greek food enthusiast, you won't want to miss Greektown while visiting Chicago. Just west of the downtown area of the city, it offers everything you can think of in their category, and plenty of choices. Authentic? You bet!
