My family has been dining at Mad Greek since it opened on Coventry. We have known the family that owns the restaurant since we were kids. I heard that they had a great new chef and wanted to see what it was all about, since the menu has been the same for years, and we have not been there in a while. We were really amazed at the changes. Of course some of our old favorites were gone, but who cares. Things cannot stay the same forever. Really surprised at 2 recent reviews on here slamming a very talented and proven chef who has created some very beautiful food. We brought a party of 8 and sampled almost all new items and absolutely loved everything. The menu is so much more well rounded. Anyone who actually knows anything about food will see this. They have done a fantastic job. We had all the new appetizers and new salads, tried the Short Rib entree, Homemade Gyro, Fishermans Stew, Hanger Steak, and a Seared Salmon Dish with Beets. We also had an awesome Bronzini fish special in a saffron broth that may have been the best thing to ever come out of that kitchen !! We finished with a rice cake dessert that was the special of the week, and was soooo good !! We will be going back more often for sure.
