Greek Eats Opening in Shrewsbury

There is a Greek evil eye staring from the window at 89 Newman Springs Road that grabbed my attention while sitting in the long traffic line, waiting to make a left turn into Red Bank. The sign said that Greek Eats was coming soon. Being of Greek heritage myself, I had to find out more about this place and was excited by what I learned.

Greek Eats in Shrewsbury is the creation of George Lyristis who is well known in the Two Rivers area, along with his two brothers Charlie and Taso, for two other establishments, Teak and Bistro. Greek Eats is a concept of George Lyristis that has been on the back burner simmering for five years. It will be a 40 seat casual eat in/take out restaurant featuring authentic vertical spit rotisseries cooking up fresh gyros. Both traditional and chicken versions will be offered along with organic vegetables and salads. I am hoping that there will be other traditional Greek items like spanakopita,  but that remains to be seen.

Greek Eats shares a three front retail space with Platypus which is already is operation and another coming retail store. Greek Eats will be opened in September of this year and I can’t wait.

There are several more locations planned in Monmouth County to be opened subsequently as a franchised, fast food style, operation.

I am thrilled by the fact that the area will have a Greek fast food choice that is healthy and unique as well as sumptuous. I can’t wait for my first taste of tzatziki and seasoned meat on a soft warm pita. It will be great respite on a weekend shopping day in the area.
