Where Have All the Greek Restaurants Gone?

opinionatedchef | Mar 20, 2014 08:43 PM

When I first came to Cambridge in the early '70's, there were quite a few Greek restaurants. There was a really good place on Mass Ave near the Door Store; and there were 2 or 3 places between Harvard and Porter Squares. (one might still be there, white and sky blue exterior, next to Mexican Cuisine (? now?) Back then , my fav neighborhood place was Greek, located downstairs,( across from Rendezvous/Burger King) in Central Sq. It made a real impression on me when the owner told me he was closing his shop and moving back home.

Does anyone remember those spots and do you agree that there are many fewer Greek restnts here now? I can't speak for Boston or Allston, but maybe Greek places have disappeared there too? Do you think maybe Greek restnts went "out of fashion" and have been replaced by Middle Eastern restnts?
