Though it's named after a city on the northern coast of Egypt, Marina Uptown is decidedly Greek. That's not that surprising, however, as before it was a resort town for wealthy Egyptians, it was a busy Greco-Roman port heavily influenced by Greek culture.
Marina Uptown pays homage to that culture in the form of classic Greek dishes, from gyros to lamb kebabs to spanakopita. Chef Adel, who's been in the industry for more than 25 years, often uses organic ingredients when creating the menu. He also whips up a variety of vegetarian and vegan options, including platters loaded with hummus, baba ghanouj, and falafel.
