Suddenly a few "Fast Casual" Greek / Mediteranean / Kebabs / Skewer / Gyro / Souvlaki restaurants are opening up.
In the Boca area we've got "Souvlaki Fast" (one in Mizner and one on US1 and SR).
Also just opening is Gyroville over by Five Guys near Town Center.
I think these places are smart and they're going to put some hurting on some of the more traditional Greek / Med spots. Walk around say Washington DC and you can find these new type places all over.
IMHO a lot of the traditional places are over-priced.
Typically you get a small amount of cheap protein (ground meat formed as a skewer or kabob) over boring rice/carb with a boring side salad of iceberg lettuce, hothouse tomato and blase dressing. And this often goes for $12-$16 range.
There new places are dropping the price point and giving you much more interestiong options.
Souvlaki Fast looked very clean and "organized" when I walked by recently.
Gyroville looks like a Greek "Chiptotle" from the website.
Comments / buzz? I'll be visiting both soon.
