First Look: GRK Ups the Gyro Game in Midtown East

In case you missed it, GRK opened its second location in NYC a few days ago, on Lex btw. 44th & 45th streets. It’s smaller than the first location in the Financial District, but the menu is the same: meats spinning on spits, a few sides, salads, and fresh and frozen Greek yogurt. With a wealth of similar options nearby, my main question was, could GRK compete? I made the ultimate sacrifice and revisited their food after a couple of years to find out the answer. Read more »

GRK Opens Today With Meats on Spits, Yogurt: Looks like the gas was finally turned on over at the second NYC location of GRK on Lexington btw. 44th & 45th streets, because we just got word that they're opening today. On the menu is lamb/beef, chicken, pork and portabello mushroom "yeero" in platter or sandwich form, and fresh and frozen Greek yogurt. You can get all of this from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays, and noon to 10 p.m. weekends.

GRK Bringing Rotisserie Meats, Yogurt to Grand Central Area

One of the most memorable lunches I ate as editor of Downtown Lunch was at GRK in the Financial District. The meal involved a Thanksgiving special of rotisserie turkey, and it was spectacular. Soon we’ll be able to enjoy Greek meats carved off spits in Midtown East, as they’re readying a location on Lex btw. 44th & 45th streets. In addition to these meaty delights (lamb/beef, chicken, pork) in pita or plate form, served with your choice of three tzatzikis, they also have a pretty kick-ass fresh or frozen Greek yogurt bar with both sweet and savory toppings.

Yes, there are places nearby to get meats on spits (Adana Grill for Turkish, Naya Express for Lebanese) but there’s always room for more.
