Casual Newbury Street Greek restaurant Greco (stylized as GRECO) will expand to Boston’s Seaport District in winter 2019, partners Stefanos Ougrinis and Demetri Tsolakis announced today, opening at the Pier 4 office building alongside the recently opened Tatte Bakery & Cafe. The new Greco will also be a short walk from full-service Greek restaurant Committee, with which Tsolakis is affiliated.
Committee opened in 2015, and in a press release regarding Greco’s expansion, Tsolakis notes that the Committee team was drawn by the Seaport’s “unrivaled energy” back then, and he finds that it continues to be “one of the city’s finest culinary destinations.”
While the Seaport District has been a bit of a magnet for out-of-town restaurant chains, Greco won’t be the only local spot in the area. The Seaport has provided an expansion target for plenty of local brands, including the aforementioned Tatte, not to mention Flour Bakery & Cafe, Cardullo’s, Aceituna, and more. (Keep an eye out for the forthcoming Paris Creperie expansion to the Seaport, too, complete with cocktails.)
Greco, which debuted in early 2017, serves counter-service gyros, feta fries, loukoumades (Greek doughnuts) with a variety of toppings, and more. Unlike its Back Bay sibling, the new location will also offer wine and imported Greek beers.
Stay tuned for updates as an opening date draws closer.
