Top 100: Restaurants – GRK Fresh Greek
GRK Fresh Greek is number 39 on our Top 100 Movers and Shakers list.
Traditional Greek cooking in a fast casual setting describes Manhattan’s GRK Fresh Greek. The New York restaurant will open two more new units this year that each will offer its pitas and “yeeros,” built from lo-cally sourced veggies, as well as authentic Greek yogurt imported daily from Greece using the country’s centuries-old straining method and locally purveyed meat, butchered in house and then marinated in a special blend of aromatic spices and Greek extra virgin olive oil. Finally, the yeeros are layered and roasted on a traditional rotating spit.
“Consumers are increasingly demanding healthier, higher-quality fresh foods,” said Christopher Potter, director of strategic de-velopment. “These demands are changing the restaurant and the food industry. GRK offers a unique alternative, combining the best products of Greece with the country’s cultural and culinary standards. It’s not just another twist on a burger or a taco.”
