Ringing In New Year GREEK STYLE

If you're in Greece on New Year's Eve - you can expect much of the same activities that we are used to here in the United States - parties, festivities, celebrations - and people out late welcoming the new, and letting go of the old.

There's card playing, fireworks, children playing in sleepy streets - and of course - eats and drinks (Greek food, of course - OPA!) at local night spots - until sunrise.

Of course, Greece has it's own traditions - such as the 'cutting of the vasilopita - which is a kind of 'New Year cake'. The cake is prepared with a coin inside, cut at the midnight hour as the new year dawns, and the lucky one who gets the piece with the coin inside is said to have blessings in the New Year. The cake itself has huge meaning. Cut by the patriarch of the home, the first piece of the cake is for Christ, the second for the 'home' - and then, everyone else gets their piece.

Start your own tradition by joining Ziziki's or Ziziki's Taverna for New Year's Eve or our award-winning champagne brunch on New Year's Day! For all our menus, seating times and holiday hours - visit our website! OPA!

Ziziki's Named Top 100 Best Greek Restaurants in United States by National Herald

Here in the big D, we take special care to bring Greek cuisine to the states in a very authentic way; with Ya Ya's old recipes and Chef Costa's award-winning culinary skills - Ziziki's delivers a delightful mix of traditionally fine-tuned family favorites. We also work hard to keep a great selection of Greek wines and others in our Dallas Wine Bars for our customers to enjoy with their meals, or otherwise. Opa!

For us, Greek dining is a way of life - to celebrate life, and to celebrate our heritage.  The National Herald (Greek news) took the time to interview restaurant owners, try the wines and mezzes, and then pare down the Top 100 best Greek Restaurants in the country, and list them state by state.
