Enjoy Greek Cuisine (and a Great View) at Avli, Now Open Near The Sinclair

Avli is a new Greek restaurant in the River North area with a modern, elegant feel. The owners have two other locations in the Chicago area and all three spots now have rave reviews. 

The restaurant is elegant without being overly expensive; customers say you’ll feel like you are on a Greek island. The menu offers something for everyone, from shareable plates to gyros and larger entrees. Customers have especially enjoyed the papoutsakia (a dish with roasted eggplant and tomatoes) as well as the pork shoulder gyro and the Greek-style lamb chops. The staff is always willing to accommodate different dietary needs and make adjustments to items on the menu. Avli also has a long list of creative cocktails and Greek wine. 

The restaurant is two stories, and from the second floor, you’ll get a view of the entire restaurant. Locals say the restaurant is fancy enough for a birthday celebration or a nice girls’ night out. The restaurant also has some intimate seating options for your next date night, too.
