Parthenon restaurant closes after 48 years in Greektown

It's the end of an era in Chicago dining as The Parthenon closes its doors after 48 years in business.

The popular Halsted Street spot - best known as the originator of the flaming cheese dish, saganaki - closed its doors for good this week.

A sign on the door said the Greektown restaurant has permanently closed.

The Parthenon was also the last of the city's Greek restaurants to make their own gyros in-house.
