Whether you call it spinach pie or by it’s traditional Greek name, spanakopita, this delicious dish is found at diners at Mediterranean restaurants across Long Island.
Since October is Spinach Lovers Month, it’s time to find out who makes it best. Long Islanders voted Athenian Greek Taverna as having the Best Spinach Pie on Long Island in the 2018 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest, breaking The Greek Place’s three-year winning streak in that category.
To the warm and welcoming staff of Athenian Greek Taverna, it’s spanakopita. But you can call it spinach pie. No matter what you call it, nobody does it better than Athenian.
Layers of flaky phyllo dough and spinach greens with a feta cheese mixture–a perfect balance of delicious flavors. Like everything cooked up at Athenian, the spinach pie is made “Yiayia’s way,” just like grandma makes it, with fresh and authentic ingredients.
Make Yiayia proud and be sure to order enough spinach pie to share with everyone on your next visit to Athenian Greek Taverna.
