Greektown is one mile north away from the Fox. Be sure to go to the Astoria Cafe/Bakery, which is not a restaurant. I can't remember the good restaurants there... sorry.

There are more then a few restaurants in Greektown to check out. Pegasus has excellent Greek food, there spinach pie is the best around. Mosaic is terrific, however its more high end. If you like Mexican food then you can give Loco Bar a try. Nikki's and Pizzapopalis have good pizza. Fishbones can offer a New Orleans feel with sushi, steak, fish, ect. A lot of people like Fishbones, however I think its overrated and I have been highly disappointed on my last two visits. A personal favorite of mine is Sweet Georgia Browns. Everything there is excellent and the service is great.

Also, the previous poster mention Astoria Bakery, I highly recommend that as well.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Approx how far would the Pegasus be from the Fox? we are attending a 7:30 concert. Walking distance? or best to take a cab? I read somewhere that the cabs are not as plentiful in Detroit.

BTW --- Greektown is SOUTH of the Fox Theatre, not north.

I didn't realize that it was a mile. There are restaurants that are a lot closer for walking purposes than Greektown if making a concert is an issue.

What is your budget? There are various pricepoints to consider from simple cuisine like Cheli's or Johnny Rockets ... to fancy, like Da Eduardo.

Don't think I'd walk, but that's me. You can get a cab, but you need to call for one you usually can't just flag one on the street. I would either take a cab or find a closer restaurant.

Depending upon the dates of your trip to Detroit, you also could take the People Mover from the Fox (Grand Circus Park station, which is about 2 blocks from the Fox Theatre) to the Greektown Station. Pegasus restaurant is in the same block as The People Mover. However, the People Mover will be shut down for track work from July 20 to August 18, so obviously will not be an option if your visit falls within that period.

Schedule and other info may be found at www.thepeoplemover.com. People Mover runs until 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays and until midnight on other days.

The People Mover operates in a one-way, counter-clockwise loop around downtown Detroit, which means it will be faster to go from the Greektown station to Grand Circus Park station than from GCP to Greektown.

If you decide to have dinner before the concert, you could park in the new Greektown Casino Garage, have dinner at Pegasus (a 2 minute walk from the Garage, if that), take the People Mover to Grand Circus Park and then either the People Mover or a taxi back to Greektown Casino Garage.
