Description

City Pages' Description

The St. Paul Christos (closed for renovations until December 2011) has one of the most fabulous of all restaurant spaces. Seated high on a platform in the middle of the soaring, neoclassical train depot, one expects Mel Gibson to hurry through with a briefcase of cash, or some French lieutenant's woman to collapse near the door. The dishes are all very good versions of Greek-restaurant greatest hits--moussaka, spanakopita, pastitsio, avgolemono soup, and the like. Be sure to get an order of saganaki, the Greek restaurant's pony show of kasseri cheese complete with a waiter ready to light a flame and melt it tableside. The Minneapolis location, with a white and bright courtyard feel, has a nice wine list with some interesting Greek wines, including the traditional resin-flavored Retsina; the St. Paul location has that, and a full bar.

    The food was spectacular! I'm a sucker for Greek as it is, but everything was truly delicious. I again, got my usual Gyro, and the cucumber sauce was unlike any other I've had; creamy, cool and refreshing, with hint of something that I couldn't pick out. The best part is the Apple dessert we ordered was made to order!

    For lunch, get the gyro special. You get a delicious gyro, fries, and soup or salad. Great deal!

    Their spanikopita is the best.

    Try the Gyros. Order the “your choice” mezes: family-style plates of gyros, stuffed grape leaves, spinach pie, tabouli, lamb chops, and baklava served in courses.—Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, February 2011

    We had the Illiad- it was fabulous!

    I had their veggie sampler. You get a choice of 2 of 4 items and a veggie, and a cup of soup for $13.00. It was yummy! Spanikopita and veggie mousaka exelent!
