Pegasus Taverna

In the heart of Greektown in Detroit lies Pegasus Taverna, a family-owned and operated traditional Greek restaurant that epitomizes the ethnic diversity and showcases the cultural cuisine of the city. While many come to this boisterous restaurant after taking in a game or to see the waitstaff light one of their house dishes — Saganaki — on fire, my personal favorite was the Greek meat platter. I’d only suggest this for those dining with five or more, but it was a fantastic way to get a bite of their succulent lamb chops, gyro meat, marinated chicken, and shrimp, as well as to taste the classic Greek dishes of spanakotiropita, dolmathes, and moussaka. We paired it with some Greek red wine and in no time our table was shouting "Opa!"
