The Gulf Coast: where there are Greeks, there is Greek wine
Above: Bakkhus Taverna is family-owned Greek restaurant in Kemah, Texas, on the Gulf Coast. In Kemah, you’ll find great Greek food, super friendly people, and great Greek wine. That’s the father of owner Demetrios Kouloumoundras, “Papa Nick” and Chef José Figueroa.
Where there is seafront property, there are Greeks. And where there are Greeks, there is great food and great wine.
Owner Demetrios Kouloumoundras is a second-generation Greek who constructed a little corner of his home country in this Galveston Bay resort town just over two years ago.
Above: Bakkhus Taverna is no cookie-cutter tourist trap. It’s a genuine Greek taverna, owned and run by a Greek family. Here, Greek cuisine (like the Saganaki above) is queen. The bounty of the Gulf of Mexico provides the freshest fish and shellfish daily.
When you visit Bakkhus Taverna, you will find fresh ingredients and traditional Greek cooking, friendly faces, and live Greek music and belly dancing.
Above: Classic gyros is o-so tasty after a day of walking up and down the Kemah 1950s-era boardwalk.

Exceedingly friendly staff, family-friendly menu and atmosphere, traditional Greek appetizers (moderately priced) and classic Greek entrées (grilled and sautéed fish and shellfish, lamb, etc.), excellent by-the-glass wine program including a number of Greek wines. And don’t miss the playful specialty cocktail menu!
Highly recommended (Kemah is a great place to spend a summer day with the family, with something for everyone).Explore posts in the same categories: food and wine, friends of Boutari, Our recommendations, Texas comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
