Five years after its founding, another expansion is afoot for Souvlaki GR. The two-time Vendy Award winning truck-to-table business will open a new Midtown outpost on 56th Street at 7th Avenue.

No word just yet on when the new space will debut, but Midtown Lunch notes that the “coming soon” signage is already in place, as is the token blue accent. But will this second location exude the same Mykonos charm as the OG? That remains to be seen.

Do you think Souvlaki GR will survive there?

Souvlaki GR was founded as a food truck in August 2010 by Pavlos and Abby Sierros. A year later, the husband-wife team introduced a brick-and-mortar location at 116 Stanton Street, where it’s been ever since. The co-founders divested from the business in 2012, though, and headed south to find success with both Forgtmenot and Kiki’s.
