Souvlaki GR Officially Claims 116 Stanton

Posted on: January 10th, 2011 at 6:16 am by

Gut renovations were already underway at the long-vacant 116 Stanton Street before word leaked that Souvlaki GR acquired the space. Two weeks ago, beneath four separate leasing signs, the empty storefront presented itself to the neighborhood.  Still visible were the leftover price list and marquee signage from former tenant Sun Sun Dry Cleaners. But now the souvlaki servers have become more assertive with their truck-to-brick-and-mortar push.  Within the last few days, their logo appeared on the security gates, along with requisite information about their liquor license application.

Souvlaki GR will appear before Community Board 3 tonight to seek approval for a beer and wine license. Official restaurant opening is tentatively scheduled for March 1.

Rest assured, though, the “Souvlakitruck” will continue driving the streets of Gotham after the flagship launches.  The following comment was issued in response to a concerned fan on their Facebook page:

The truck will be back on the road this month [2 week break]. We stated in our release that we absolutely plan on keeping the truck on the road and operating both a truck and a restaurant full time. We want everyone to enjoy souvlaki as much as possible!
