This weekend one of Tricia's (bf's sister) friends was in town that studied with her in Greece, where I visited her last year. We wanted to get together with Tricia's sister, who also visited them in Greece, although not at the same time as I did. What better way than to celebrate with Greek food? We tried Eleni's in the Pearl District. Turns out our server studied abroad in Athens the year before these girls did! The food was excellent and reminded us about our time in Greece.
