About Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna
The Melidis-Katsoulias family from the Patras region on Greece's western coast decided to bring the Mediterranean influences of home to Chicago's Greektown, opening Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna in 1990, and later on opened sister restaurants Artopolis Bakery, Cafe & Agora and Pegasus On The Fly. Though diners can find Greek favorites such as saganaki and gyros on the Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna menu, the servers also recommend kitchen specialties such as char-grilled octopus and center-cut lamb chops. Every week, they'll fly in fresh Mediterranean sea bass ("lavraki") and sea bream ("tsipoura"). Chefs season the whole fish with sea salt, pepper, oregano, olive oil, and fresh lemon juice, before filleting and grilling tableside.
The chefs use spices imported from Greece to season their dishes and get fresh bread from their sister restaurant, the nearby Artopolis Bakery & Cafe. In the main dining room, bright-blue accents stand against breezy whites and creams, and an eye-popping mural of an island vista stands next to white-draped tables. While the main dining room offers the full menu, Pegasus also features a seasonal, open-air rooftop veranda (approximately from Memorial Day to Labor Day), where guests can enjoy al fresco dining from a selected menu of mezedes, or small plates, as they gaze at Chicago's skyline.
