A Greek Restaurant in Mississippi Offers American Too

October 13, 2018

MADISON, MS – It may seem unlikely deep in the heart of Mississippi – unless you know how Greeks love to cook and open eateries – but in the town of Madison you can find Greek food at Kristos Amerigreek, which also offers American-style plates.

It’s in a Victorian-style building complete with gingerbread trim and a wide front porch. This isn’t your grandmother’s tearoom, a review in the Mississippi Clarion Ledger put it, saying the food “is exactly what you would expect from a bustling Greek restaurant offering a celebration of the palate with a charming combination of Greek and as the name suggests, American cuisine.”

For those who can’t pronounce the Greek treats, such as tzatziki and gyro, reviewer Kara Kimbrough had a simple suggestion: “Just remember these two words: ‘Meatballs, please.’ I promise, you won’t regret it.” Don’t pass it up.


LONDON - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis had a meeting with Greeks of the diaspora while in London on Wednesday, during which he highlighted the options that Greeks living abroad now have to vote in Greek elections from their place of residence, as well as his government's emphasis on reforms.
