Pegasus Taverna Restaurant Review

: Detroit’s Greektown is one of the few places where people can dine after midnight --- well after midnight, as a matter of fact. This spot, marking more than two decades on the scene, serves until 1 a.m. Sunday thru Thursday, and until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. A perennially popular appetizer is flaming cheese, served to shouts of “opa!” by servers as it is lit. Other classic Greek dishes include baked moussaka, thinly sliced eggplant layered with potato and seasoned ground meat and topped with béchamel and tomato sauce. The menu also features numerous lamb options, from a roasted and sliced number to one simmered in tomato sauce. Other proteins include pork, veal, chicken and beef. Vegetarians do very well here, too; there are spinach pies, meatless stuffed grape leaves, and a number of fresh salads, including the Greek topped with feta cheese, beets, olives and hot peppers. Portions are large, and many items are good for a group. Combination platters give a fine introduction to the fare, which is served a mere poker chip's toss from the Greektown Casino.
