It’s time to don your laurel crown and toga! The Simple Greek, a new fast-casual greek restaurant, has revealed plans to open in Downtown St. Pete.
The new eatery will occupy 2,000 square feet on the ground floor of the AER apartment building, which opened in May 2016. The other 2,700 square feet will soon be home to Tampa Bay’s first Bento Cafe, an asian kitchen and sushi restaurant.
Think of The Simple Greek as Chipotle, but for greek food. In other words, customers choose between a bowl or a pita and then follow their order down the counter as their meal is built. After choosing a protein, such as traditional gyro, chicken gyro, grilled steak or grilled chicken, toppings and sauce are added. There are ten toppings available — feta cheese, red onions, scallions, tomatoes, cucumbers, kalamata olives and more. The sauce selection includes tzatziki, greek dressing, garlic cream, and hummus.Read More
