Santorini Greek Kitchen is another longtime favorite of NUVO readers. This year’s top place as Best Greek/Mediterranean Restaurant is win number eight for one of Fountain Square’s most vibrant eateries. Before we forget, make sure you have galaktaboureko for dessert.

For dessert, spoil your taste buds with an order of roti rolls — pan-fried flatbread smothered in sticky icing.
