As Boston’s Financial District comes back to life, there’s a new convenient lunch option in the neighborhood: Fast-casual Greek restaurant Greco, which already has outposts in Boston’s Back Bay and Seaport District, is now open at 1 Milk St. Known especially for its gyros and loukoumades (Greek-style doughnut holes), the growing local chain also serves Greek salads and soup, coffee, and more. There are some retail items imported from Greece that are available as well, such as a tomato paste, sea salt, and Greco’s private-label olive oil, which is produced in Crete.
The opening of the new location also coincides with a couple other updates for the company. For one, there’s a seasonal ice cream collaboration with local vegan frozen dessert company Fomu; try it on top of the loukoumades. Plus, on July 19, the Seaport location will debut an expanded retail section, Agora by Greco, with Greek cheeses, charcuterie, imported pasta, nuts, honey, Greco’s own condiments, and more.
Demetri Tsolakis and Stefanos Ougrinis are behind Greco, which first opened in Back Bay in 2017; the duo also opened the full-service Greek restaurant and wine bar Krasi in Back Bay in early 2020 with several other partners. (Tsolakis is also part of the team behind swanky Greek restaurant Committee in Boston’s Seaport.)
The new Greco location is currently open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, but the schedule will eventually expand to include Sundays. There’s indoor seating for two dozen, and takeout and delivery are available. Also keep an eye out for a fourth location of Greco — it’s expected to open this fall at the forthcoming food hall, Hub Hall, opening at the Hub on Causeway development in Boston’s West End.
