The Greek Kitchen Pastitsio

Pastitsio with layers of macaroni and seasoned ground beef topped with Bechamel sauce and Cheddar cheese.

In Kirkwood, The Greek Kitchen is known for serving up traditional Greek dishes. While you can't go wrong with a classic gyro or a chicken kebab plate adorned with tzatziki and pita, a big slice of pastitsio makes for a cozy, comforting meal perfect for the first snow of the season.

Much like a lasagna, this pie-like dish consists of long macaroni noodles layered with seasoned ground beef, cinnamon, creamy Béchamel sauce and melted cheddar cheese. Sound a little too decadent for your liking? Go for the spanakopita, featuring layers of chopped spinach and three cheeses seasoned with Greek spices and sandwiched between sheets of flaky filo dough. 

The Greek Kitchen is offering its menu exclusively for takeout.
