Downtown Valparaiso’s Best Restaurant
To be named Valparaiso’s best restaurant is a remarkable accomplishment. For Chef Chris Pavlou, his Greek influence is cornerstone to the Radius culinary experience. The menu isn’t Greek. You’ll find the Radius menu is better described as “comfortably cool”. The best recipes from around the planet… with a Greek-American flare.
According to chef Chris, serving great food is not enough. Chris learned the Greek tradition of meeting every customer and making sure they have great service from his father. It’s the experience that matters.

Radius-Valpo was named Restaurant of the Year by the South Shore Tourism for 2019 and Best Signature Burger at the Chefs of Steel Competition.

Valpo’s best location, outdoor dining and live music
