The Greek on Main offers traditional fare with a modern twist
You want Teddy Kappas to feed you. When he describes the food at The Greek on Main, his eyes light up. He is animated. He starts talking with his hands. He takes out his phone and brings up pictures, as if he were showing photos of his kids. He doesn’t stop there. He gives you details — the ingredients, the style of cooking. And oh, the taste. Sort of like a parent would give a detailed reporting of little Johnny’s game winning soccer goal. And these culinary children are incredibly beautiful. Really. He gets up and brings back a bottle. “This is special olive oil,” he says with a sense of excitement. “It comes from my father’s village in Greece. There is nothing like it here.” Read more from the original article.

Atmosphere beautifully supports menu at Greek on Main
More than any other cuisine, Greek food is truly the sum of its parts. While you’ll run into some spices and herbs here and there, such as cinnamon, thyme and oregano, the food of Greece is most no-table for the interaction of its core ingredients. A gamy lamb shank, a fine feta, a whole Mediterranean fish or fresh figs tend to need no help from the spice rack if combined masterfully. And The Greek on Main does it right. The restaurant, on the corner of Main and New streets, produces Hellenic dishes from all regional cuisines. Some you may have heard of, and some may be new to you, but you can be sure that the kitchen is putting out versions at their best. Read more from author Christopher Thumann.

Thalasina Yuvetsi Review – Our Local’s Guide to Our Favorite Central Jersey Seafood Dishes
Thank you By Melissa Beveridge for the review! Located in the heart of New Jersey, The Greek On Main (419 Main Street, Metuchen 732-515-9457) channels the hearts of seafood loving Greeks with whole grilled fish and specialties like their Thalasina Yuvetsi, a combination of clams, mussels, shrimp, and calamari in a garlic, white wine, and tomato sauce all served over orzo pasta. It’s the Greek cousin of paella – and the Greeks probably thought of it first.
Edison Arts Society (EAS) Presents Nella Zadra at the Greek On Main
Nella Zadra, an international artist who graduated from the College of Fine Arts
in Buenos Aires Argentina. After working in commercial art and sculpture for several years, she decided to concentrate on mural painting but continued to enjoy creating smaller pieces.
She left a legacy of more than 50 murals throughout Buenos Aires where she participated in group and
individual exhibits. In working for the Historic Monuments Society, Zadra helped to restore three historic temples and created scenery for the opera “Francesca da Rimini” at the very prestigious Symphony Hall in Newark, NJ.

EAS president, Gloria S. Dittman, complimented Teddy Pappas, owner of the Greek, for supporting
the ARTS! We hope that everyone will visit the exhibit and support our artists here in NJ. If I may,
I’d like to leave you with this thought — “Art transcends all barriers, all languages and speaks to everyone.”
