Besides the freshest authentic Greek cuisine in the city, Taverna Plaka offers something we think has been missing from the Atlanta restaurant scene for years: audience participation. And also cheese that’s on fire.
Besides the freshest, most authentic Greek cuisine in the city, Taverna Plaka offers something we think has been missing from the Atlanta restaurant scene for years: audience participation. Where else can we get actual dinner entertainment in the form of belly dancers on the weekends, and also participate in the festivities? Yes Scouts, we’ve been looking for an excuse to spin and throw our napkins, and join our waitstaff in a traditional Greek zorba (that’s line dancing for the uninitiated) during an impromptu celebration of everything Greek. Even the food offers a level of participation we don’t see anywhere else- you make the hummus dip at the table with a mortar and pestle at Taverna Plaka. You read that right- your server will bring the garlic, chickpeas, herbs, and olive oil, and youmash it together at the table, fresh to order.

And the deliciousness doesn’t end there. No Greek feast can begin without Saganaki- flaming Kefalograviera cheese with rum and fresh lemons. That means you're playing with fire, Scouts, and we encourage it. But why stop there? They’ve been on Cheshire Bridge for 13 years, and came under new management only two years ago. The new guard revamped the whole menu and made sure every dish was as fresh and authentic as possible, without actually flying to Greece. Go traditional with the half lemon chicken, served with roasted red potatoes and green beans, or dive into a towering stack of Greek lasagna called Moussaka. The lamb dishes are where Greek cuisine really shines, so try some lamb shanks, lamb chops, or a gyro plate with shaved roast lamb served with pita, tzatziki, and Greek salad. Complement the meal with a Mediterranean-inspired cocktail, local brew, or Greek wine from their impressively stocked full bar, and get the party started. But beware- you’ll have to come ready for anything, because you'll be expected to know your moves when you get there.
