Emilitsa......Best Greek food ever, Portland.

Sekar | Feb 10, 2008 06:00 PM

I had the best Greek meal in the arts district of Portland Maine last night. The place is called Emilitsa and it opened only 1 week ago. The food is gourmet Greek, and I must say that it reminds of food that I have had when I traveled to Greece. I had delicious Mousaka and tender lamb shanks prepared with tasty tomato herb sauce. We had a number of appetizers that were amazing. There is a good selection of wines and the Baklava is the BEST I have ever had. Clearly this chef is an expert in Greek cuisine. Everything was fresh and hot and only the finest ingredients are used. I saw a beautiful large fish served that I wish I had ordered. The fish was imported fresh to be served this weekend.

The atmosphere is quaint and the service is good. The menu is an introductory menu, and I can't wait fore the full menu to be revealed. I have reservations for Valentines day and hope to make this a regular spot for our family. If you love well prepared tasty and elegant Greek food then make your way to Emilitsa in Portland.....you'll be glad you did.
