Thursday Sips & Nibbles

I'm back again with a new edition of Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food and drink events. I hope everyone dines out safely and tips well. ******************************************************

1) Greco, one of my favorite spots for Gyros and Loukoumas, has debuted their third location on the street level at One Milk Street in downtown Boston. Greco is a tGreek modern eatery from Owners Demetri Tsolakis and Stefanos Ougrinis, who also own and operate Krasi Meze + Wine

We are so honored to have our third Greco concept located in the midst of Boston history,” said Owner Demetri Tsolakis. “Greco Milk Street blends our signature Truly Greek experience with the rich history of the building. This location has a very distinct energy that is all its own and cannot be felt anywhere else in the city and we are very excited to meet and connect with so many new people.”

Greco’s new location is modern, airy and bright with 24 seats, including a communal table and banquette window seating. The space features raw materials from Greece such as marble from Mt. Pentelli and lime which are utilized in ancient Greek architecture. 

From gyros filled with the highest quality, free range chicken, beef and pork to soups and salads made with local vegetables, the chefs prepare Greek fare fast – with no compromise on fresh. The menu at Greco showcases a bountiful mix of customizable pita wraps, plates, salads, homemade sauces, soups, sides and legendary loukoumades. Greco’s Truly Greek coffee program includes Freddo Espresso, Freddo Cappuccino and the classic and popular Greek iced coffee known as Frappe. Carefully selected Greek pantry staples such as Merenda, Kyknos Greek Canning Company tomato paste, Pappadopoulos Caprice, Kalas sea salt, and Greco’s private label extra virgin olive oil from Crete are also available for retail.

Greco Milk Street is open Monday through Saturday from 11a.m.-8p.m. The hours of operation will extend in the fall to include Sunday. Greco is available for pre-order via their custom app, delivery via Chownow and also offers catering.

Greco also announces the debut of Agora by Greco on Monday, July 19. Agora by Greco is a new concept at the Pier 4 Seaport location. In ancient Greece, the Agora was an open space used for public markets and as a meeting place. Agora by Greco is a re-defined modern market with exclusive products from Greece. Since opening Greco, the team has been carefully sourcing from small, independent and boutique purveyors throughout Greece. 

Agora features an in-house cheese shop with various styles of PDO cheeses such as graviera, ladotyri, mastelo and manouri. The olive oil is from trees that are harvested exclusively for Greco. Provisions such as charcuterie, imported pasta, baked goods, nuts, honey and seasonal signature Greek treats are plentiful. For the first time, Greco’s signature sauces such as tzatziki, spicy feta and charred eggplant are also available for retail.
