You can eat octopus at New Parthenon for lunch, dinner or a midnight snack. This popular spot is usually open until 3am, and it's a favorite with the late-night bar crowd. Surrounded by huge Greek statues and garish Art Deco murals, diners can also sample the Parthenon special trio of baked eggplant, pastitso baked macaroni and spinach pie. The other Greek staples, including the stews and the flaming cheese, are all on the big menu. Like its competitor the New Hellas, the New Parthenon is simply a remodeled update of the original Parthenon restaurant. Locals and visitors have been stuffing themselves with grape leaves in lemon sauce here for decades.
went to the restrunt after the last lions home game. was looking for a great dinner. when we got there it was very busy, we were getting bumped into by waitstaff carrying food and busboys.we ended gewtting a seat fairly quick. ordered our meals in about 15 minutes and recieved all our food in approx 20 to 25 minutes all except for my meal which was shimp and scallup fetachini alfrado. asked where my dinner was and they said n had a problem with the scallops so they were remakeing it. after another 20 minutes my meal finally came of coarse every body else was justabout done with there meals. it looked excewllant so of coarse i went directly went to get a scallope from my plate tokk a bite and the scallope was raw and cold. complained to the owner which was of almost no help like he forgot how to understand english. about 15 minutes later the waitress came back over and said ghe got approval to remove my meal from the bill. thats the meal i never got to eat after over being there for well over an hour. the rest of the partys food was fine but the courtesy shown by the owner and staff was awfull.
Parthenon...All I can say is, that it wasnt worth the bill..At All! Although the buss boys and my waiter did his job, to the T..However the Med T bone steak I ordered was ready in less than 6 minutes, was like chewing on a stacy adam..Not 2 mention Flavorless..The gusts of wind cut threw me like a machette,thats how close to the door we were..It was similar to standing in line at a fast food joint, as a customer sits in a chair and eats right there in line..Imagine that...O.V.E.R.A.T.E.D....Big Time....
This place has really gone down hill. I used to go here about 3-4 times per month for great food. The prices have increased, portions decreased, and quality left completely. I spoke the owner after a disappointing meal yesterday. His attitude showed me why I no longer see the crowds of the past. I recommend any of the other great restaurants along Monroe street.
What a great experience. We have never had Greek food before but this was quite possibly one of the best meals I've ever eaten. I had the Reganato ( lamb shanks in oregano and olive oil baked to perfection)rice and green beans in a great tomato sauce . My wife had the sampler platter of Moussaka , stuffed grape leaves , spinach pie , braised lamb shanks , rice and peas. We started the dinner off with Sagonaki ( fried cheese ) Ooommmpaaa !! The service was wonderful , the wait staff very friendly and knowledgable and the prices were extremely easy on the wallet. The portions were huge . Complete dinner for 2 for under $ 40 with an appetizer...how can you go wrong there.
Used to be the best, since they started comping meals because of the Casino across the street, they but the meat in 1/4 of the original size, resulting in very over cooked meat. Taste is still there, but sorry to say they just don't care about their old customers.
During the summer months, the center of Detroit's vibrant jazz and blues scene is this small, graceful outdoor riverfront pavilion.
It's one of the few places near downtown that takes full advantage of the city's waterfront. An attractive, understated ...
