To Eat Greek in LA: Now You Can Try Freedman’s Jewish Restaurant

Greek restaurants in the United States are, of course, mostly owned and run by Greek-Americans, but not always, as Freedman's in Staple Silver Lake, California is showing with adding a Greek chic to its Jewish food fare.

Greekman's was the name worked up by owner Jonah Freedman who told Eater Los Angeles that Greek food was underrepresented in the area despite a Greek-American community.

He said he decided to put a Greek flair and twist to his restaurant's offerings with lots of olive type entrees as well as the ubiquitous souvlaki to go along with lamb chops and even a blue-and-white menu, the colors of Greece.

Restaurants which survived the COVID-19 pandemic have been trying all sorts of ways to get and keep customers coming as it begins to recede and Greek food is a fan favorite across the country, even if you're looking for a brisket at Freedman's.

The menu is now heavily Greek, including Greek Panzanella salad, giant beans, grilled octopus and lemon, tzatziki and one you won't find likely anywhere else for dessert: olive oil ice cream. That's a new one on us.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams?
