I took some of my employees to Olympia a few months ago for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Because there were 6 of us, we were able to try a number of different appetizers and entrees and share them all. I have to say that everything was absolutely wonderful and we plan to go back in the next couple weeks. Dress is just about anything goes and it's casual. A must-try!
Best Greek Restaurant St. Louis 2003 - Olympia Kebob House & Taverna
In a city that doesn't pay much attention to Mediterranean cuisine, Olympia mounts a nightly one-restaurant crusade toward Greek-eats awareness. First and foremost, of course, are the gyros, which are the best in town by far (perfectly charred meat, pillowy pita, rich tzatziki) and come to the table so speedily that it's akin to Clark Kent quick-changing in a phone booth. Gyros are just the gateway, though, to a bountiful menu of Greek savories such as spanakopita, moussaka, pastitsio and saganaki. (This last, kasseri cheese set ablaze at tableside, seldom fails to prompt regulars to cheer "Opa!") Forsaking the stereotypical ancient-Hellenic décor for American comfyness and a handsome mahogany bar, Olympia's atmosphere proves cozy and lively all at once. A mandatory trip for foodies and just-plain-hungry people alike.
