Are there any type foundries specializing in Greek fonts?
(I am sure there must be...)
Cannibal Fonts, maybe.?
Adobe, Monotype, Tiro, Linotype, Typotheque
Check the Greek type section of Natasha's site - http://www.raissaki.com/

I'll just point to a few typefaces I have used, and can therefore recommend. I only consider OpenType fonts, for reasons other people have explained much better than I could; but I'd add that when it comes to non-Latin you'd be a fool to not use Unicode-encoded fonts.
Adobe Minion Pro and Myriad Pro are as good in their Greeks as they are in their Latins; ditto Warnock Pro, for a different kind of documents. More interesting (and for an entirely different category of documents) Garamond Premiere Pro -- also, the only truly complete character set in the stable, with full polytonic and small caps.
Helvetica Linotype is a cut above its siblings, if you're looking in that direction.
Victor Gaultney's Gentium supports polytonic Greek (and is free).
There's also a small operation in Seattle with some very good -- albeit monotonic -- Greeks under its belt, but I haven't seen the fonts retail yet; my guess is they'll end up bundled with some piece of software or other.
"There’s also a small operation in Seattle"
Would that be near Redmond?
technically it should be a "small operation *near* Seattle"
More like: Seattle is a small operation near it.
"Seattle is a small operation near it."
LOL!!! One of your better ones Hrant :-)
