Boukies closed down after barely 2 years

Boukies met with heartbreak earlier this month; the two-year-old Greek restaurant is now closed for good. Despite printouts on premise which cite ambiguous “renovations,” the outgoing phone message confirms the news in no uncertain terms.

Owner Christos Valtzoglou (also of Pylos) forged Boukies from the ashes of his previous endeavor, the Michelin Award-winning eatery Heartbreak. The latter barely lasted a year.
