Thanks for the tip about parking at the Greektown Casino! Here is a little tour of the area starting with the walk from the parking lot :

My lunch - turkey salad with minestrone soup and a very soft French-style bread that didn't taste French ... I never had anything like it in Paris.

Greektown was actually a German area of town until about 1900, when the Germans moved north to the Harmonie Park area, and the Greeks moved into what is now Greektown.

The waterfall in the International Center Building is 114 feet tall, cost $2 million to construct, and pumps 600 gallons per minute. It is in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Different people like different restaurants in Greektown. From what I've heard, the most authentic Greek food isn't actually in Greektown, but rather on the other side of downtown at Nick's Gaslight at Bagley & Grand River.
