If you attended the recent GreekFest in Westfield, you might be craving more delicious homemade Greek food. It turns out there’s a wonderful Greek gourmet store just a stone’s throw away in downtown Kenilworth.
The Greek Store was established in 1950 by Nicholas Diamandas and is still run by his family today. Their specialty is–you guessed it–homemade Greek and Mediterranean cuisine ranging from appetizers, entrees, dips, cookies & pastries, and more. They also have a wide array of cheeses (who knew there were multiple kinds of feta?), olives, oils, nuts, packaged goods, and frozen foods you can horde for later cravings. My Greek friend highly recommends their spanakopita, roasted red pepper dip, moussaka (layered eggplant entree), chicken with orzo, and baklava.
The Greek Store offers full-service catering for all occasions. In the shop you’ll even find gifts such as jewelry, Greek cookbooks and CDs, Greek children’s books, religious items, and more. Looking for a unique housewarming gift? Nicholas and his staff create gift baskets for all occasions.
The Greek Store is located at 612 Boulevard in Kenilworth and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm. For more information call (908) 272-2550 or visit their website at www.eatgreek.com. They accept all major credit cards.
NOTE: The Greek Store will be closed for a summer break from August 3 to September 1st, reopening September 2, so hurry up and get your Greek fix today!
