Volos Taverna is now Ziziki's Taverna

We couldn't be more excited to announce a name change for our new "sister" restaurant, Volos Taverna.    Our new name.......drum roll please......

Zizikis Taverna

Our name change allows us to extend the success of our Ziziki's brand to our new concept in Addison Walk.

In the first two months we received a tremendous amount of feedback from customers who spoke to Costa and Mary Arabatzis at Volos and requested that some of their favorite Ziziki dishes and more of the premium wines be added.  Ziziki's Taverna will continue to feature mezzes...Greek and Italian cuisine presented on small plates. We've just added a few of your Ziziki's favorites like Calamari and Chicken and Lamb Souvlaki!

This name changes captures the essence of our company and more accurately reflects our mission and products that appeal to all of our very special customers!   Please come and join us at Ziziki's Taverna for a casual Mediterranean experience!

Beans of the Gods

When you think of the word “Giant” you probably think about the fictional characters (depending on your era...) Shrek or the Incredible Hulk, but I can - with certainty - guarantee, that you probably do not think about a bean.

So - visualize the host of Greek gods on Mt. Olympus - (they're probably bigger than we are, right?) -rest sure that if they're eating beans - they're Greek style Gigante Beans.

A GIGANTE bean is a type of bean originating from the Mediterranean. They are a very large, flat bean - usually about one inch or more in length which is extremely large compared to your typical beans such as navy, pinto or other beans. And of course - being a bean - they're the perfect meal and alaways a great source of protein and fiber.

For Lunch - enjoy a mouth watering plate of gigante beans. These beans are straight from Florentine Greece and are baked with plum tomatoes, Feta, and pancetta. These Mezzes will truly leave you with your mouth watering for more.

For Dinner - Why not try as a side dish with something just as delicious like rack of lamb.  Being the Greeks we are - we always serve with grilled asparagus and - you guessed it - gigante beans!

Since gigante beans can be kind of tricky to find and cook, (they are considered a specialty) come try them with us - at one of our Ziziki's Restaurants or at the new and hip Addison restaurant Volos Taverna. The GREEKS knows what they are doing with this specialty - it's one of the most prized and favorite dishes!
