GRK’s Officially Opening Next Wednesday Serving Meats On A Spit, Yogurt
Word was that new chainy-looking Greek restaurant GRK on Fulton St. (btw. William & Dutch) would open on Sept. 6 (or so said the NY Times), but they announced on Twitter that the date was delayed as so often happens with new eateries. Yesterday we got word that they’re actually opening for lunch on Monday UPDATE: We just heard that the opening has been delayed to Wednesday at 11 a.m. A look at the menu shows a few similarities to nearby Pita Press, but less in the way of vegetarian options unless you want a salad. This is a place for carnivores and lovers of Greek yogurt.
Do you like meats roasted on a spit? If so, you’re in luck because they’ll have a lamb/beef combo, chicken and pork cooked this way and served either in a pita (all less than $10) or as a platter ($10 or more) with a side like fries, a cabbage slaw or brown rice. In addition to baking their own pita, the meats are coming from local farms, they’ll have three flavors of tzatziki, and you’ll be able to get both frozen and fresh Greek yogurt that’s being imported.
Apparently that new Chobani store in Soho isn’t the only place you’ll be able to get yogurt with sweet and savory toppings if you don’t want a cup of the stuff from the supermarket. Among the more interesting toppings on the list are rose petal preserves, fresh figs, olives, basil and cucumber. A cup will set you back around $5.
So, will you all be checking this place out, or sticking with the other Greek food options in the Financial District?
