The New Hellas is Greektown’s oldest — founded in 1901 and still in the family. It’s one of the few that serves rich, tangy, house-made Greek yogurt — with a pitcher of warm honey on the side. The bean and vegetable soups are superior, as is the omelet with feta. Most ordered: lamb chops and the "Hellas trio" — moussaka, pastitsio and spinach cheese pie. Be careful to ask for Greek coffee, not Turkish.
