CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With an inspired new menu featuring a blend of California and Greek flavors, Daphne's California Greek has again earned the right to call itself the Best Greek Restaurant in San Diego. Daphne's received the most votes among the readers of the San Diego Union-Tribune's annual poll, "San Diego's Best." Daphne's has won the honor every year since 2010, when the category was first included in the 16-year-old poll.
A new limited-time only menu item, the Mini Pita Trio showcases these Flavors of Daphne's by offering three mini-pitas in one entree. These include:
- One Greek Mini-Pita, a Greek-style pita sandwich with savory gyros, red onion and tangy tzatziki sauce
- One Cali-Greek Mini-Pita, which combines both flavor profiles into one pita sandwich. This mini-pita includes grilled chicken, Daphne's sauce, salsa Fresca, feta cheese, and Kalamata olives
- One California Mini-Pita, another pita sandwich with a California flair featuring grilled chicken, Jalapeno bacon, and guacamole topped with salsa Fresca.
"Our unique fusion of California, Greek and Mediterranean flavors is continuing to win over diners who want flavorful, fresh tasting food," said Bill Trefethen, CEO, Daphne's California Greek. "Thank you, San Diego, for again voting us as the best Greek restaurant in the county."
Daphne's was also recently recognized by the California Restaurant Association for its contributions to the communities it serves. The company received the Restaurant Neighbor Award for its efforts to promote reading in partnership with San Diego libraries.
Founded in 1991 as Daphne's Greek Cafe, Daphne's California Greek was purchased in 2010 by Wreath Equity LLC and has since become a successful, lifestyle-oriented concept with 53 restaurants in California, Arizona and Colorado. Daphne's revamped menu features Mediterranean-inspired, California cuisine made with high quality ingredients that emphasize nourishing and healthful options. Daphne's menu takes its inspiration from health-conscious consumers who desire quality, flavorful foods that can also fuel their active and full lifestyles.
The new menu includes specialty salads, flatbread pizzas, pita sandwiches, and seafood complemented with flavorful sides such as a spicy Fire Feta® dip, roasted veggies, and savory tabouli. More than a dozen new menu items, as well as most of the retained items, fall under 700 calories and can be customized to accommodate low-fat, low-carb, high protein diets as well as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diets.
