A new restaurant in Fenway could open as early as March, and the people behind it are familiar faces in Boston. Jody Adams (Rialto, Trade) is among the team leading the charge to open Saloniki, a fine-casual Greek restaurant, according to Boston Restaurant Talk.
This news comes alongside an effort from Adams (a James Beard Award-winning chef), Eric Papachristos, and Jonathan Mendez to open a new seafood concept in Avalon at the Prudential Center.
The Greek restaurant is presumably named after Greece's second-largest city, Thessaloniki, according to Zagat. Saloniki will reportedly focus on customizable meals that draw on classical Greek foods like lamb meatballs, pork shoulder, and whipped feta cheese, and charred eggplant and tomatoes will be available, served on or alongside salads, rice bowls, or pita bread.
Saloniki could open as early as March, and although an exact location for the place hasn't yet been announced, Boston Restaurant Talk reports, citing licensing documents, that it'll be at 132 Brookline Ave.
Correction: A previous version of this story listed Sean Griffing, not Jonathan Mendez, as a partner in the Saloniki venture. Mendez will be a managing partner and co-owner.
