Khagendra ‘KG’ Gurung Knows His Greek Food, Denver’s Glad

Not all Greek or Mediterranean food restaurants are dominated by Greek-American chefs or owners, as Khagendra ‘KG’ Gurung has shown with his new Denver restaurant he named Mazevo. 

Greek for “to gather,” it seems especially apt during the time of COVID-19 that keeps people apart, and his family – the name is of Indian and Nepalese descent and comes from Tibetan – are doing that, owning nine restaurants in Colorado. 

He told 303 magazine he picked the concept after doing market research in the neighborhood where it's located and said he wanted to bring a Mediterranean option to the table 

“We want people to come in and spend their time here,” he said, keeping in mind the health protocols required during the pandemic, bringing to its aesthetics some suggestions of classic Greek architecture and designs. 

The menu is inspired by Mediterranean food that includes a fusion from countries including Greece, featured in a kofta kebab with seasoned ground lamb served with grilled vegetables and a chicken shawarma ($14) been marinated in a harissa-yogurt sauce served with garlic aioli and fresh hummus so think outside traditional Greek fare too.
