RE: GREAT Greek In Chicago
I like Greek Islands and it is a great place to go with a big loud group. However, for the quality of the food, I have to say I like The Parthenon just down the street a little bit better.
BTW if you are on Halstead you HAVE to stop into the Pan Hellenic Bakery (I think the address is 322 S. Halstead) and get a pound or two of Louie's cookies. These are the best cookies I've ever had. Basically it is two cookies that are a cross between a brownie and a chocolate crinkle sandwiched together with some chocolate cream/frosting. My wife and I love them so much that we have even called and had them shipped overnight to Ohio.
