Best Greek Restaurant Houston 2006 - Alexander the Great Greek
Readers' Choice: Niko Niko's
New Greek cuisine entr?es such as grilled sea bass or angel-hair pasta with saut?ed shrimp, scallops and calamari may be the most interesting things on the menu, but Alexander the Great Greek is doing an admirable job of being all things to all Greek-food lovers. There's Athens-style fast food like pita sandwiches with french fries and Americanized Greek salads with lots of lettuce topped with gyro meat, grilled salmon or grilled chicken breasts for dieters. And then there's a full complement of traditional Greek dishes, all done right. The restaurant's moussaka, made with a rich ground meat mixture seasoned with cinnamon and cumin, is the best in town. Greek wines, innovative and traditional, are featured on the wine list. There's also an impressive selection of ouzos. For the full experience, make reservations for Friday or Saturday night and take in the Greek floor show, complete with bouzouki player and belly dancer.
