Helmed by a husband-and-wife team whose romance began with a heart-shaped pizza, Tower Inn Café matches diners with a wide variety of Mediterranean fare that garnered the most votes for Best Greek in Washtenaw County in 2011 by AnnArbor.com readers. Wage war against hunger with entrees such as the chicken kebabs, two dueling skewers' worth of marinated breast meat in between armor of onions and green peppers fighting to impress an audience of rice, potato wedges, sweet potato, or crispy fries and fresh homemade bread. Pizza disks fly from the kitchen in an array of colors and flavors, including the white pizza Blanca topped with chicken breast and bacon and the green-pesto artichoke pizza, which harvests spinach pesto, feta, mushrooms, and assorted veggies into a pie to please herbivores and herbivoyeurs alike. A shared dessert, such as a piece of New York–style cheesecake, lets dining pairs build a sugary bond more durable than an engagement ring made out of Sweet'N Low. Tower Inn's colorful floral arrangements, arched doorways, and murals of vines and joyous Greek scenes transport visitors to a Mediterranean villa, and events such as karaoke and live jazz provide an entertaining alternative to staging dinner theater productions of The Iliad with a feta-stuffed napkin folded to resemble a Trojan horse.
