The Bagdad Theater shows occasionally awesome second-run movies. It's worth admission price just to see the Middle-Eastern themed interior but there's more. You can get some pizza and even a beer and every other row has been removed to allow for tables and plenty of leg room. So you never have to worry about some annoying sociopath kicking the back of your chair through your screening of Harold and Kumar. The connected pub offers all the other McMenamins amenities and promises entertaining people-watching on busy Hawthorne Boulevard.
Foti’s (often called simply the “Greek Deli”) is a Portland landmark of sorts. Unchanged for years, it’s bare bones, simple interior serves as a Greek deli/restaurant and grocery as well. Order at the counter from a large selection of Greek dishes like slouvaki, gyros, spanakopita and Greek salad as well as American favorites like burgers (garden too) fries; both French and “Greek” (broasted/jojos). A large selection of soft drinks and beer await in the refrigerated cases and the grocery store section carries items like phyllo dough, olives, balsamic vinegar, wine and cookies. It’s like one-stop Greek heaven!
