The Spanish on the sign might be a little off ("Greek" in Spanish is "griego"), but I was impressed by this trilingual effort while driving south on Normandie Avenue the other day.

I'll confess that I've never eaten at Papa Cristo's, a 63-year-old Greek market and eatery on Pico Boulevard. But now I'm intrigued, if anything by their ambitious marketing: They may be the only Greek taverna in Los Angeles with an online menu in Korean. Way to adapt, Papa.

And for those who want to learn a few words of Greek, there's that, too.
