Top Greek Spot
Why locals love it
A mix between grocer and restaurant, Papa Cristo's is a great place to visit for authentic Greek cuisine, spices, and wines. They often have live music, and are a gold mine for exotic spices. Whether visitors are hankering for a full meal, or just a flavorful pastry, every item on the menu is authentic and delicious.
Why you should visit it
Papa Cristo's staple sandwich, the lamb and feta, has been featured on many "Best of LA" lists, and lives up to the hype. On Thursdays, the restaurant does a huge Big Fat Greek Family Style meal, with a set menu, live music, and belly dancing.
The owner is usually on the premises and is extremely friendly. Make sure to say hi. And don't forget to try the Spanakopita.
