Local Restaurant Spotlight: My Greek offers a choice for everyone

Finding a restaurant to take a large group to can be rough. Not everyone is going to agree on a thematic venue. Luckily, Nader Morco’s restaurant My Greek offers a swath of Greek, Italian and American food sure to please anybody.

My Greek opened in Puyallup in 2007, with an expansion opening in Tacoma last year on 2303 N. Pearl St. Morcos says My Greek’s success stems from the three pillars of Greek, Italian and American food items on the menu. The combination allows a wide variety of options for anyone to enjoy.

“Not everyone likes Greek food, not everyone likes Italian food, and not everyone likes American food,” Morcos said. “But combined, everyone can find something they like.”

The Greek pillar is held up by Classic Souvlaki, with your choice of chicken, beef or lamb, marinated, grilled and served with tzatziki; one skewer for $9.95 and two for $11.95. My Greek also offers gyros, a mix of lamb and beef roasted and thinly sliced for $8.95

The American menu is highlighted by the Angus burger, an 8 oz. patty grilled with American and Swiss cheese for $7.45. The Beer Battered Fish and Chips is line-caught Alaskan cod in a crispy beer batter hand dipped to order. Served with French fries, tartar sauce and lemon for $9.95.

The Italian pillar is held up by various pastas, including Fettuccine Alfredo made with cream, garlic butter and Parmesan cheese for $9.95. The Italian pillar also houses the classic Chicken Parmesan, smothered in marinara, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese served over penne marinara for $11.95.

My Greek offers a variety of pizzas, a small 10-inch for $8.95, 12-inch for $10.45 and 14-inch for $11.95, with your choice of traditional red, Alfredo or creamy pesto sauce.

My Greek houses a bar full of vintage Italian, American and Greek wines. Due to the success of the restaurant, Morcos is expanding the business to a third store in the coming year, which will be his second location in Puyallup.

The My Greek location on Pearl Street is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The restaurant can be reached at (253) 752-2700.
