Time Out says

Restaurateur Louie Alexakis knows a thing or two about Greek cuisine, having spent nearly three decades working in the restaurant biz in Greektown and nearby suburbs. He and partner Lou Canellis drew from that experience to open Avli Taverna—a concept that puts a contemporary spin on regional Greek dishes—in Lincoln Park in 2018. Four years and two additional Chicago locations later, Alexakis has brought a highlight reel of dishes to Time Out Market, with a menu broken into three categories that capture the full spectrum of Avli’s approach to Greek cuisine. Whether you’re in the mood for flaky spinach pie, filo-wrapped prawns or chicken souvlaki served on house-made pita bread, Avli delivers an authentic taste of Greece and its diverse food culture.
