A wonderfully intimate dining space with center bar and apparently a beer garden in the back! Joined friends for an evening of celebratory small plates. We tasted: mussels (bathed in deadly pot liquor); French fries seasoned with oregano & other spices; lamb skewers. Two orders...More

Description
Opa is a new Modern Greek restaurant and bar located in Center City's Midtown Village neighborhood. The menu features a fresh take on traditional Greek flavors. Featured items from the mezedes (small plates) include herbed keftedes (meatballs) in a ouzo-tomato sauce, octopus and spinach croquettes served with a smokey feta dip. Large plates offer a variety of items such as striped bass and pastitsio. The signature cocktail list and Greek wine selection offer the perfect complement to your meal. Acclaimed designer, Jun Aizaki/Creme, created an alluring setting which includes a striking birch branch canopy.

Walk-in seating is available at the 24 seat bar and offers the full menu.
