Loukoumades at Gre.co
| Rachel Leah Blumenthal for Eater

By the end of January (see update below), Newbury Street will be filled with the sweet smell of fried dough, courtesy of Gre.co. The fast-casual Greek restaurant, opening in the former Scissors & Pie space at 225 Newbury St., comes from Committee’s Demetri Tsolakis, as previously reported. It prominently features Greece’s take on doughnut holes — light, crispy balls of fried dough called loukoumades, available at Gre.co with a variety of toppings, from crushed Oreos to pistachios.

Also on the menu: gyros; customizable pitas, salads, and plates with a variety of fillings and toppings; fries with feta; zucchini chips; avgolemono soup; and a range of soft drinks, including Greek-style iced coffee (frappes), ouzo-flavored soda, and more. Plus, there’s a retail shelf with some specialty food items from Greece, along with Gre.co’s stuffed mascot, Tasos.

Gre.co will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; keep an eye on social media for an announcement of the exact opening date, most likely early next week (see update below). Opening day will include free loukoumades. Then, in the spring, watch for the opening of Gre.co’s 18-seat seasonal patio.

Here’s a peek inside the bright, cozy restaurant:
