Call roadside assistance. Looks like the Souvlaki GR truck is nearing the end of the road. Apparently the kitchen-on-wheels, its permit, and route are altogether for sale. At least according to this post on Craigslist. Not much info is given on price or reason for the unloading, as you might imagine. We have a communique out to the lister, but no word back as of publication.

UPDATE: Owner Kostas Plagos denies the listing, claiming that the original post on Craigslist used this image of SGR in error.

Souvlaki GR was initially conceived as a food truck in 2010, and became wildly popular. The brick-and-mortar store at 116 Stanton arrived the following spring. However, its principals cashed out in summer 2012 to create Forgtmenot on Division Street.
