If you’ve got a hankering for Greek food in the Boston area, CBS TV’s Phantom Gourmet has picked out places you won’t want to miss.

Niko in West Bridgewater is a casual restaurant specializing in amped-up spins on the classics and Greek-style burgers.

Committee in Boston is in the trendy Seaport district and features Zucchini Crisps and marinated lamb souvlaki. Gre.CO on fashionable Newbury Street is a fast casual Greek concept modeled after the gyro shops you find on the streets of Athens.

The Feisty Greek in Norwood is a casual family restaurant serving souvlaki, gyros, and pastichio, fast and affordably. Ithaki, in clam-loving Ipswich, is upscale and serves lamb tips skewered over rice, crocks of Moussaka, and Saganaki cheese drenched in alcohol and set on fire.

Saloniki is a street food-inspired, quick service eatery  and Gyro City offers…gyros.


  1. Ithaki is the best, by far, in New England. And Gyro City and Esperia are only a few blocks away from each other in Brighton for great food.

  2. Unfortunately they left out the best Greek food in all of Boston (which is actually in Cambridge), The Greek Corner on Mass Ave. Anything else may be good, but not excellent like the Greek Corner.

    Perhaps the best Greek restaurant of all isn’t even in the United States, you have to go to Nassau in the Bahamas and go to The Athena Café. Fresh fish, gyros to kill for and roasted potatoes that rival your Yia-Yia’s on her best day.

    1. OPA! My Father always said the secret to ones heart is though their stomach! Our satisfaction at Athena Cafe is witnessing the enjoyment and quality time spent at the dining table, and watching the plates come back empty! Thank you for the compliments, see you when you are back in Nassau, Bahamas!
