Only in the Motor City can you get world-famous pizza alongside a slew of delicious Greek food.
At Niki’s Pizzeria in the Bricktown section of Detroit, diversity lives on. Located at 734 Beaubien, mere steps from Greektown, this melting pot of bar food, Greek dishes, and award-winning pizza is a hit.
The outdoor seating in the case of appropriate weather is an added bonus; allowing the energetic foot traffic of the booming district to be the scenery during your meal.
The interior at Niki’s is open, airy, and charming, with high wooden ceilings, cozy booths and pleasant little tables throughout.
While the Greek food is good, go to Niki’s for the pizza. There are enough Greek and Mediterranean restaurants around Detroit to satisfy cravings for the former.
The deep-dish deliciousness is cooked to perfection, with a crispy crust that’s chewy and fluffy all at the same time.
The “Super” selection comes equipped with cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, ham, and either beef or lamb (don’t fight the Greek influence, it’s worth it in this case), and “Extras” including black olives, tomatoes, feta, bacon, and hot pepper rings.
Also available are some dinner items like fish and chips, chicken parmesan and ribs, sandwich selections such as burgers, subs, and gyros, and Greek favorites like Pastitsio and spinach pie.
Niki’s Lounge is available for private parties, offering buffet-style meals, a place for DJs and bands, and bottle service.
All in all, Niki’s offers some much-needed variety to one of Detroit’s most culturally influential regions.
