A sudden shift in the projected path of Hurricane Irma in 2017 is what landed the John & Effie Lindeman in unfamiliar territory. This Miami family extended their stay and spent the rest of the week exploring the town of Fairhope before returning to South Florida with Fairhope on their mind.
Enamored with the charm of the Eastern Shore and feeling the need to provide the area with authentic Greek cuisine the couple shared the idea with Effie’s brother, Gerry Kourouklis and teamed up to created the perfect taste of Greece in the heart of Downtown Fairhope. With their Grandmother’s recipes and the knowledge of their family’s successful restaurants the trio opened It’s All Greek To Me this past February.
The family presents a taste of the Greek islands in their freshly made authentic dishes. Try their stuffed grape leaves (dolmathakia), fried calamari, skorthopsomo (garlic bread), Hephaestus Saganaki fried cheese or Loukanico (Greek sausage) or go for the it all with the Hercules Pikilia Sampler platter – a selection of some of their best starters and main dishes.
Entrees such as Spanakopita (Spinach pie), Briam (Ratatouille), Yemista (stuffted tomatoes/green peppers. Moussaka, Pastitsio (Greek Lasagana), Kreatopita (Greek Meat Pie), Auntihentic Old Fashioned Lamb Gyro, Chicken or Pork Souvlaki Pita Wrap, Greek Salads and Greek Soups are also on the menu. And by all means, leave room for dessert! They can do wonders with phyllo! They serve a full bar and all of the wine is from Greece (they even serve Greek beer!) It’s All Greek To Me is
