Maybe you have heard...but we are retiring from the restaurant business this month.  Originally as Cleveland's Diner, then as Plaka Taverna, we've been part of the First Settlement neighborhood downtown and have enjoyed serving local residents,  workers, and visitors throughout our 25 years. Though the circumstances of 2020 have been challenging for the hospitality industry, this is a move that has been planned for some time. 

We thank ALL of you who have supported us over the years, and hope to see you at the annual Greek Fest every July at the Greek Orthodox Church in Madison. There will be another restaurant coming in Winter/Spring 2021 to our location, featuring authentic Chinese cuisine.  

Last day of restaurant operation:  November 11, 2020 

Thank You All!

Telly, Nico, Beth and the rest of the Plaka gang
