Thornhill, ON L3T 2C6
Philoxenia means “friends to the stranger,” a feeling that is instantly met when you step inside this fine-dining Greek restaurant. Located on Yonge Street in Thornhill, Philoxenia offers traditional Mediterranean food with a haute cuisine twist. Outside, the walls are decorated in the same blue and white that is found on the Greek flag. Inside, the decor matches the vibe, with white linen table cloths, chairs, walls and marble galore. The chefs cook up cuts of meat at the butcher's corner, including lamb shank, cornish hen and steak. For those who enjoy the more traditional side of Yiayia’s cooking, the Mousaka has been layered with prime minced beef, sweet eggplant, zucchini and a creamy bechamel sauce. Continue a journey through Greece with a fine selection of Greek wine from Lykos Kratistos and Mega Spileo.
