Best Greek Restaurant


4805 Eastern Ave., (410) 633-3750,

Posted 9/21/2005

Itís hard to go wrong in Greektown, but itís always just right at this family-run celebration of food and culture. That may explain why the couple sitting next to you canít remember when they didnít eat at Ikaros. If youíre new to Greek food, just ask your server for recommendations. She not only knows the food, but probably is related to the people cooking it. While youíre at it, donít miss the Greek salad, particularly the house version, and the spinach and feta pie that makes you wish you had a bottomless stomach. If you canít find room for dessert after you finish your souvlakia, take some baklava home for a late-night Greek fix, then start saving up your calories for your next visit.
