A restaurant opening across from the South End Buttery will bring a bit of Greece to Boston, with a menu that evolves with the season, according to Boston Magazine. Kava Neo-Taverna is on track to open this April at 312 Shawmut Ave., where it will serve a range of Greek dishes, plus food directly imported from the Mediterranean.
The owners of the place, George Axiotis, Irakli Gogitidze, and Shahrokh Reza, have designed the interior using items from Greece, including stone for the bar and reclaimed wood, which will be used for the tables, Boston Magazine reported. The restaurant posted a Facebook photo of a giant painted figure on the wall with the hashtag "παππου," which means "grandfather" in Greek.
The menu will include small plates, a selection of seafood, and baklava, plus imported Greek yogurt and honey, among other dishes. Greek wine and liquor will stock the bar along with standard craft beers and spirits.
Kava Neo-Taverna is also hiring employees for the opening.
