"DINING OUT Fans of Greek dining spots rave
about their faves." cover story by Nancy Leson,
Seattle Times food writer. "Elsewhere in Greenwood, a cry goes
up for Yannis. Many echo the sentiment of those who say
the rotisserie chicken is excellent, but so is everything else
on the menu," citing ample portions at reasonable prices and
staff that "know the customers and remember you when you come
back-even if it's months later."
