At first glance, the brick walls and twinkle lights at Pegasus may appear to create an intimate, romantic setting, but don't be fooled: The taverna is really a boisterous, festive restaurant, much like the rest of Greektown. Healthy dishes with classic Mediterranean seasonings are prepared in an open kitchen at the front of the dining room, and a recently added deli counter serves up plenty of Greek favorites to go. The saganaki, a serving of kassari cheese flamed with brandy, is always a popular appetizer. Other traditional Greek dishes are offered, including hummus, kabobs, moussaka eggplant, spanakoteropeta (spinach cheese pie) and gyros. In addition to favorites such as lamb chops, there are some unique finds: red caviar, fried squid and broiled octopus. American dishes such as steaks and fish are served with potatoes and vegetables, and omelets and vegetarian dishes are also available. For dessert, rizogalo (rice pudding) or bougatsa (a custard-filled pastry served warm) are both good choices. And, there's always baklava.
Full bar. Serving lunch, dinner and late-night daily.
"Detroit's Greektown is one of the few places where people can dine after midnight - well after midnight, as a matter of fact."- Gayot
