Greek Sunday Brunch in Chicago area?

Anyone know of one?

I just returned from a (wife's) family event in Orlando, FL. My wife's family has no interest in anything that isn't available at Denny's (and there are even items on the Denny's menu that are too adventurous for them - luckily my wife doesn't suffer from this affliction), so on Sunday morning we hopped in the car and just started driving, in search of something interesting. Pickings were pretty slim in suburban Orlando, but we eventually saw a sign for a place called "Athena" located in a strip mall, and figured it MUST have something interesting on the menu, even if it's just a Greek omelette. It turns out they were in the middle of their Sunday Brunch, with a pretty authentic looking (if not very wide) selection of Greek specialties, in addition to the standard-issue American brunch items and omelette and pancake stations. Everything I tried was very good (they had a chicken / gyros item that was outstanding), the price right, and now I'm craving a similar experience closer to home. A bit of internet searching for "Greek Sunday Brunch" didn't turn up any results, so I'm taking this one to the experts. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Scott
