Finally, Clearwater Has An Authentic Greek Restaurant
After much anticipation, Greektown Grille opens its doors.
CLEARWATER – Greektown Grille is now open in Downtown Clearwater. The truly authentic Greek restaurant from the Karamountzos family opened its doors in late August and critics agree that the city of Clearwater has a winner on its hands in the Greektown Grille.
The menu is filled with traditional Greek dishes that will rival even traditional grandmother’s cooking. House Specialties including Spanakopita (layers of crisp filo dough filled with spinach, cheese and fresh herbs), Moussaka (eggplant, zucchini, potatoes and ground beef, topped with Bechamel sauce), Pastitsio (layers of macaronia and seasoned ground beef, topped with Bechamel sauce), and Chicken Pitas are just the beginning of its varied and delicious menu. Arni Giuvetsi (braised lamb shank in a red sauce) and Octapodi Skaras (Octopus chargrilled with authentic Greek seasoning, drizzled with olive oil and lemon) are some of its other authentic specialties that are second to none. And for dessert, an order of Kantaifi (Shreaded filo dough, walnuts and cinnamon, topped with a light syrup) will top off a genuine Greek culinary experience.
No detail was over looked when the Karamountzos created the Greektown Grille. “The community has shown amazing support during these initial opening weeks,” comments proud owner Sam Karamountzos. “I think people are genuinely excited about having a truly authentic Greek restaurant in this part of the county. There’s nothing else like this around, so we are just inviting people to come in and give us a try. And we will certainly not disappoint them!”
All of the offerings at the Greektown Grille are moderately priced. Appetizers range in price from $4 - $12. Entrees start at $8. They are open for lunch daily and offer Express lunches for $7 - $8.
The décor of the Greektown Grill is as appealing as the varied menu. Whether you choose to eat inside in the tastefully decorated main dining room with high ceilings and rich colors or in the comfortable banquet room, the atmosphere is sure to enhance the dining experience. This large banquet room also doubles as a dance club with upbeat live “new Greek” music played every weekend.
An ideal spot for a festive family dinner, an intimate dinner for two, a convenient business lunch or just an enjoyable gathering spot for happy hour after work, the Greektown Grille will surely deliver a bona fide Greek experience that will make any grandmother proud.
