New Neighbor: GRK Fresh

GRK Fresh brings the flavors of Greece through its authentic Yeeros and Grillers, now available at the store's Flatiron location at 304 Park Avenue South (entrance on 23rd Street). The fresh-casual concept cooks meats on site over an open flame, bringing high quality flavors to Flatiron's food-focused clientele. The Flatiron location is the third Manhattan location for GRK Fresh, and seventh location globally, with stores in Washington D.C., and Dubai.

Asked  about GRK Fresh's growth, Marino Stratigakis, Director of Operations at GRK Fresh, said "Our goal this past year has been to showcase GRK to a broader customer base which is more discerning and demands higher quality, while still relying on the convenience provided by fast casual restaurants." Asked about the neighborhood he added, "the Flatiron District, with its diverse restaurant offerings and a noticeably wide variety of options, presented the right venue for us to meet our goal."

The menu at GRK Fresh features Yeeros, which combine freshly baked pita, marinated and spit-roasted meats (lamb & beef, chicken, or pork) and Grillers, consisting of flame-cooked meats or veggies, paired with one of three original tzatziki sauces. Exclusive to the Flatiron location are Greek yogurt marinated lamb chops with turmeric brown rice, as well as fresh-baked spanakopita and baklava. For dessert, diners can enjoy house-made authentic Greek yogurt, served frozen or fresh. Available toppings for this healthy treat include rose petal and toasted almonds, salted caramel and sesame honey bites, or baklava.

When customers walk into the store on the busy 23rd Street corridor, they will instantly recognize design elements reminiscent of Greek aesthetics. The 64-seat restaurant features tall ceilings, with bright whites and blues, and pale wood. Diners can comfortably enjoy their freshly-made food at the restaurant, or take it to go. With an ever growing diversity of cuisines in the Flatiron District, GRK Fresh complements the lively fast-casual scene on 23rd Street.

Hours are Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.
