After 4 years and 99 Annex posts, we’ve finally reached the 100th post in that series. One of the most frequented types of cuisine for the Annex is that of Greek. For this occasion, the place that was put to the test was Nostos. I might have thought of something a little more special for the 100th post, but Greek cuisine has played a large part of the Annex and I was more than happy to set foot in Nostos.

One of the most highly contested areas in Montreal cuisine is that of Greek food. There are literally dozens of worthy contenders to the title of who makes Greek food worth trying. While we all have our trusted favorites, once in a while. there comes new players that we must stop to take notice. One of the latest players on the scene is a place in the Plateau area of Montreal called Estia.

During the 2011-2012 season of the GBS, Greek food has found a way into my plans when it comes to eating. While there are so many big time names in that realm of cuisine on the island of Montreal, we rarely get to add newcomers to that list. On a late June afternoon, I was about to be taken to a place called Sparta to see how a relative unknown in Greek cuisine would fare.

My visit to Le Jardin de Panos is the third in the series of outings as part of the Fat Squirrel Society (inside joke). The first visit was in October for Korean BBQ and the second was in the midst of Chinatown. So, we took a little bit of a curve by going to see what other Greek restaurants there were to explore in Montreal. I honestly thought that I reached the plateau of Greek cuisine with my other visits, so I was hoping to expand to that list.

2011 has been a big year for me to try and get to like Greek food. Over the course of this calendar year, I got a know a Greek colleague who basically has been guiding me through Montreal’s Greek cuisine. But, I need to say that I’m not the only one who wants to expand their Greek horizons. Shortly after my post on Ellada at the end of September, a conversation on Twitter gave me quite the idea.
