couple of the celebrities who
go to Old Parthenon.
Seems that most who
come'here make this Greek-
town eatery their place on
the strip . . . via recom-
mendation of others if they
don't know themselves.

There's only one prob-
lem with Old Parthenon
... Everything is so good
that unless strong
willpower is exerted, the
chance of becoming
overstuffed could be a
concern ... There were
four of us in this place of
close, friendly atmos-
phere ... where people
go for the food and its
homey ambience ... plus
possibly the best service
in Greektown.

Old Parthenon is celeb-
rating its seventh anniver-
sary . . . seating 170 on two
floors . . . and owned by Tom
Peristeris, Jim
Panagopoulal and Art
Korogiannis . . . Our maitre
d' who waited on us was
Angelo Anastasiou, known
from northwest eateries .. .
and now a Greektown favo-
rite.
It is a vast difference from
when the site used to be The
Delphi Restaurant . . . Tom,
Jim and Art were waiters at
New Hellas (all Greektown
restaurant owners help
each other in every way
possible to form a cohesive
relationship) . . . and de-
cided to go on their own.
As one of the best Greek-
town dining places, Old
Parthenon has become
noted as the place where
celebrities go . . . After 2
a.m., people come from
everywhere to not only eat
at Old Parthenon, but to
have a dessert no one else
has . . . It's simply called
Parthenon Cake . . . but oh,
my, what goodness! . . . It's
made right at the restau-
rant . . . with custard, nuts
and crushed pineapple.

Old Parthenon is a
homey, intimate place .. .
where the owners and
Angelo go into its kitchen
to make sure the food is
properly prepared ... If
necessary, they make
many preparations
themselves.

Naturally, we started out
with Angelo yelling "Opa!"
as he flamed Saganaki, the
sharp cheese fried in olive
oil . . . and flambe'd delici-
ous Greek sausage . . . The
appetizers continued with
Tarama (whipped, creamy
red caviar mousse)
eggplant, yummy pan-fried
squid and tender baby oc-
topus in lemon and oil sauce
. . . (Tom says he couldn't
sell any octopus at first so
started calling it Greek
Lobster and now can't keep
enough of it) . . . Sageki
(yogurt, cucumbers, garlic
and celery) and Skordalia
(whipped potatoes with gar-
lic).
Then a Greek salad that
unlike many restaurant
salads, didn't just lie there
limply looking at you, but
fairly leaped onto your fork.
'JAW'"? it was time to rest „

. . . and enjoy sips of our
wine . . . Santa Helena and
Saint Pateleimon.

Now it was time for
dinner ... honest ... The
Parthenon Special Plat-
ter served family style
sounded great . . . and
was even better tasting
... Juicy baby split lamb
chops surrounding shish
kebob lamb sauteed in
wine (its gravy is abso-
lutely Heavenly dunked
with Greek bread ...
Don't know too many
places in Greektown that
have this gravy), spinach
pie with the thinnest
crust you'll find any-
where, moussaka, stuffed
grape leaves, rice and
mixed vegetables.

Sure we ate too much .. .
but was it good!
The fellows also own
Mykonos . Supper Club on
Lafayette . . . and we felt
like a walk after this meal
. . . Trouble was that it
wasn't far enough anyway,
just a couple of blocks .. .
Where else downtown at
any hour of night can you
walk blocks upon blocks?
. . . Even three or four in the
morning on weekends,
Greektown streets are
crowded.
Mykonos Supper Club is
run by Paul Panagopoulal,
Jim's brother . . . and has
become the showplace of
Greektown . . . It seats 200
but is planning an exten-
sion of another 125 in about
a week or so.

c=.

This is Mykonos sup-
per Club's second an-
niversary ... On stage, a
Greek bouzouki player
noted for his fastest fin-
gers in the world, has
been there a year ...
Belly dancers love the
opa! excitement created
at this wondrous club.

It, too, serves food and
drink . . . on two levels .. .
with the same menu as Old
Parthenon, except for a
couple of Mykonos spe-
cialties . . . created by its
two chefs during the week
and three on weekends.
Visiting Greektown is
always a memorable event
. . . this was certainly no ex-
ception.

THINGS
DIDN'T
WORK out to their liking,

so Zoie and Georgia Rodis,
with son Victor, owners of
Spiffy's on Greenfield and
10 Mile, will not join in tak-
ing over the former Green-
10 and Dubbs Restaurant
site in New Orleans Mall,
10 Mile and Greenfield .. .
being named Western Steak
House . . . Instead, they'll
confine their efforts to the
34-seater of 20 years .. .
with hopes to soon make it
into a low-priced, quality
gourmet operation.
IF ERIC LUTZ and An-
thony Brown have pur-
chased the Raleigh House
on Telegraph and 10 Mile
. . . speculation is as to what
they will do with it.
TRILOGY, top 40 group,
is at Dewey's, Michigan Inn,
