The area once had a large Greek American population, but many residents have left the neighborhood, spreading throughout Chicago and the suburbs. Today, Greektown consists mostly of restaurants and businesses, although a cultural museum[1] and an annual parade and festival[2] highlight the continuation of Greek heritage in Chicago, and — unlike such Chicago neighborhoods as Pilsen and Little Italy, which have lost their original ethnic character — it remains essentially Greek.[citation needed]

On the night of January 31, 2010, a 4-alarm fire ravaged Costa's Restaurant, affecting two nearby stores. The restaurant is now considered a write-off. One of the businesses that was destroyed in that fire, Greektown Music, has since reopened on Halsted street next door to Artopolis Cafe & Bakery.[citation needed]

The current Greektown location dates to the 1960s; it replaced Chicago's original Greek neighborhood, known as "The Delta," which was displaced by the University of Illinois at Chicago.[2]

Flaming Saganaki was invented at the Parthenon Restaurant in Chicago's Greektown.[3][4][5]

Greektown is easily accessible via public transportation by riding the Chicago "L"'s Blue Line to the UIC-Halsted station and heading north, or via the #8 Halsted bus route.
