What You'll Get


Along with inventing the olive, the Greeks innovated the pita, which they used as an envelope for urgent messages about shifts in toga fashions. Send yourself a tasty message with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of taverna-style Greek fare and more at Byzantio Cafe & Bar on West Gray.

Moonlighting as both a casual daytime café and a vibrant evening cocktail lounge, Byzantio Cafe & Bar caters to both sun and luna-lit longings with authentic Mediterranean recipes and decadent drinks served until 2 a.m,. Culinary courtships can begin with a plate of tiropita ($5.95), an all-star team of feta, ricotta, and cream cheeses bundled in flaky phyllo dough. Pita armies disguise themselves in Italian getups via an array of greek pizzas, such as the sliced gyro meat, fresh tomatoes, onions, oregano, and kasseri cheese found atop the gyros pizza ($7.95–$9.95), while other plates go meat-free with items such as the Byzantio special ($6.95), a verdant greek salad bundled in a fresh pita.

For anyone who gets thirsty while eating, specialty coffee concoctions along with teas, juices, and sodas ($1.85–$4) complement pita-filling flavors. Reservations are recommended for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, when the lounge features either live belly dancing or an in-house DJ, who chooses to spin records instead of the meat skewers found in many traditional DJ stands.

  • Great cafe. Love the outdoor patio and appetizers. Snacks are great from kabob sticks to pita and dipping sauces. Greek music is a plus. Makes me feel like I am at a cafe in Athens. – Nick, Urbanspoon

About Byzantio Cafe & Bar


Byzantio Cafe & Bar

Every Thursday night, belly dancers swivel their hips to the beat of Mediterranean music at Byzantio Cafe & Bar. Live DJs spin on weekends while patrons puff smoke rings of apple-, melon-, and mint-infused tobacco from hookahs. To fuel the revelry, chefs whip up classic Mediterranean cuisine such as sliced gyros with warm pita bread and a lamb souvlaki plate. After dinner, patrons may sip signature cocktails or grab a quick snack from the menu of bar bites and Greek coffee served until 2 a.m. The restaurant, a renovated bungalow, is composed of several rooms filled with sofas and cushioned chairs. The space’s centerpiece is the elaborate bar adorned with a stone mosaic and surrounded by antique fixtures. A patio offers additional seating for outdoors junkies during nice weather.
