The History of Le Petit Greek
On the quaint main street of Larchmont Village, nestled in among the wonderful shops and coffee houses, sits one of the jewels of the L.A. dining scene, Le Petit Greek Restaurant. Owners Tom and Dimitri Houndalas have created a comfortable atmosphere and carte du jour that instantly transports you to a sumptuous springtime hideaway in the Greek Isles. For generations the Houndalas family has established a legacy of superb eateries beginning in the Peloponnese and then to the picturesque coastal village of Nafplion. In 1988, that long tradition of excellence came to Los Angeles.
The simple, elegant dining room is awash in white and green, adorned with baskets of fresh lemons. The walls are covered with wonderful black and white photographs of Greece, whose dramatic views are offset by a striking, often whimsical dash of red.
The food is plainly some of the best Mediterranean cuisine in Los Angeles. There is an award winning wine list from all over the world including an unparalleled selection of Greek wines. The entrees are impeccably fresh and light. The signature of the house, delectable baby rack of lamb simply melts in your mouth and the daily fish specials are hand picked by the owners each morning. A meal can also easily be made from the incredible selection of Mezedes (appetizers) and salads.
Come let Le Petit Greek bathe you in the warmth and flavor of the magical Greek Islands.
It will beckon you to return again and again.
