Not long after man discovered fire he went looking for something to cook. Meat was among the first and best options. But not long after, he set his sights on cooking cheese. That man was Greek and the result was saganaki, of which you'll find no better variety in all of Detroit or Greektown than at Pegasus Taverna. Opa, indeed, thanks to over three decades of authentic Greek fare.
