Gyros as art form/ 'Gyros on the Spit'

zorro | Aug 4, 200212:02 AM

Gyros served by the aptly named 'Gyros on the Spit' Broadway just south of Belmont, closed nearly 2 years back, were the best we ever had. The thin slicing, letting the spit completely brown the edges, tomato never chilled, thick sauce and always served in a conical pita wrap has not been duplicated, at least not for me. I enjoyed the place for 15 years, until the family decided to move back to Greece (maybe their building became too much of a temptation to sell during the continuing neighborhood boom.) Any suggestions for Gyros replacements would be appreciated. The closed venue always had moussaka, spinach cheese pie, steam table beans, rice, potato etc. in addition to great Greek wines ($1.65 glass), saganaki and the other usual suspects.
