The Naughty Greek will hold the grand opening of its University Avenue restaurant Tuesday, Dec. 5, from 4 to 4:30 p.m. Once Mayor Chris Coleman cuts the ribbon, Angelo Giovanis’ second Greek restaurant will be open for business.
Located at 2400 University Ave., in the C&E Flats & Lofts building, the restaurant will seat up to 74 people and serve a variety of Greek foods, beer and wine.
Giovanis, a native of Greece, opened his first restaurant at Snelling and Selby avenues a year ago. It was so successful that he needed a new space with a larger kitchen and more storage to house the olive oil, feta cheese, honey and olives that Giovanis will import from Greece, he said. The University Avenue restaurant will have a similar menu to the Snelling Avenue location, including the store’s signature dish: pork gyro made from scratch with layers of locally sourced meat, herbs, garlic, olive oil and citrus.
