Papa Cristos Greek in the Byzantine-Latino Quarter

August's FoodGroupLA is this Sunday. Join us at Papa Cristos Greek Taverna and try the Sizzling Feta (my favorite burnt-cheese dish), or lamb chops, kebabs, spanakopita, and more. The fresh Mediterranean flavors are perfect for a relaxed summer afternoon. If we're lucky we'll spot the diminutive Papa Cristo himself.

Where: Papa Cristo's Greek Restaurant
2771 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, 90006, (323) 737-2970

Directions: The Byzantine-Latino Quarter is just west of Downtown. Take Normandie Ave. exit off 10 fwy and drive north about 1 mile. Restaurant is on northwest corner of Pico Blvd. and Normandie Ave. There is a small parking lot behind restaurant (enter on Normandie) or try street parking.
