Spanakopita is a dish best served cold

So I’ve been meaning to tell you all that Troy, the new little Greek place across from the Alameda Theatre, opened two Saturdays ago. And I’m not a restaurant critic, but I can say the food the hubby and I had there the other day was good. I loved their big, flaky, buttery spanakopita so much, I ate the whole thing in the car on the way home.

We moved here a long, long time ago from beautiful Western New York, home to a veritable cornucopia of wonderful Greek diners – which are shockingly absent here in the Bay Area, culinary capital of America. We were excited when Daphne’s opened at Towne Centre, and the food there is decent but the portions are not what we’d hoped (Yelp reviews here). Troy offers some of the same dishes (though no kebabs, drat!) with more on your plate or in the takeout bag for your dollar.

They’re at 2318-A Central Avenue, 522-2800. They’ve got takeout and catering menus.

Troy’s opening is just the latest in a series of moves we’ve noticed on Park Street. With Sway moving down the block we’ve got a new kids “gifts and essentials” store called Monkey Bars opening in their old space. And in the former Island Advertising storefront on the corner of Park Street and Alameda Avenue, get ready for … another yogurt place!
