Akropolis is a Greek restaurant in Newport Beach. It features the gyros and moussakas and spanakopitas you’d expect at any Greek eatery, but it's also proud to serve more refined dishes. Atana shrimp finds the crustacean bathed in a tomato-cream sauce spiked with white wine -- tangy, hearty, perfect.

There’s even a full pasta menu that’ll make you wonder why more Greek restaurants cede the game to the Italians.
