I went to Santorini’s yesterday. I am not a huge fan of suburban dining, since many are chain restaurants and offer very little variety, but Santorini’s is definitely not a chain restaurant. It sits in what was the Pickled Parrot (and then, Canyon Grille) building off of 494/5 in Eden Prairie. Despite the fact that it’s next to the giant Transit parking ramp, it has a great location overlooking a large pond just arcoss the road to it’s south. The deck usually has a wait, and this time it was over an hour, so I chose to eat inside. I stood inside waiting for my guests and watched the people leaving. Every single one took the complimentary Uozo shot (it’s a black licorice liqueur) and then struggled with the exit doors, almost as if they had forgotten that the doors swing outward. It was a nice chuckle.
I had the pita melt (no pics) which was a delicious take on the traditional Greek pita, turning it into a sandwich with a layer of cheese. Dippable, and cool.
Here are some pics of the area.
