Opa! Not your Grandma's Spiro's

Flaming cheese memories abound; the original Spiro's on Natural Bridge near UM-St. Louis, and the "newer" locations in Creve Coeur and Chesterfield serving up Greek cuisine by tuxedoed waiters who are masters of flame.

Rejoice far west-enders -- there's a new Spiro's location in St. Charles on Hwy. 94, a lighter, not your grandma's spot with the same great food and a younger crowd. Salads are great; stuffed filet with twice-baked potatoes, even better.

Had a date with my hubby Sunday night (a great dining out night for low crowds) and Spiro's was our pick. We had to let Grandma (really!) know how the new spot is, as Spiro's is her absolute favorite (the one in Creve Coeur) restaurant.
