Description: This often-used phrase is warmly said by Chicagoans to family and friends when suggesting where to share a meal together. Considering the many big-city restaurant choices, Greektown, amazingly, with its familiar surroundings, keeps drawing generations of locals who maintain a strong connection to the area. 

In Greektown Chicago: Its History, Its Recipes, not only do we feature the heritage of the close-knit neighborhood, formerly known as "The Delta," we also celebrate the life stories of Greek Americans throughout Chicagoland. In this community, which gave the world gyros and saganaki, we turn a spotlight on four of Greektown's award-winning restaurants, legendary for classic Greek dishes of impeccable quality. They include: Costa's, Greek Islands, Parthenon, and Pegasus. 

As an added bonus, Greek residents of Chicago have opened up their kitchens to share their time-tested, traditional recipes which are reminiscent of families gathering around Yiayia's dining table to share their lives and Sunday dinners. 

Greektown Chicago: Its History, Its Recipes is a wonderful blend; a book like no other. Much like a recipe which offers delightful combinations to entice the senses, this book weaves a tapestry of culinary delights, snapshots portraying the daily lives and aspirations of Greektown immigrants, and reflections of an enduring community with a rich cultural history that still thrives today. Simply stated, this book seeks to bring you the best of the Greek community; its history, its food, its people, and its heart.
