Saloniki – A Boston Venue – Is Adding Two More Fast-Casual Greek Eateries

It’s proven such a hit that Saloniki, the fast-casual Greek restaurant with three locations in Boston and Cambridge, is moving to add two more, roaring back from the still-lingering COVID-19 pandemic that closed many establishments.

“We had such good momentum in our pre-pandemic expansion. We had intended to keep that up, but February 2020 put everything on pause. Within the ebbs and flows of the pandemic, we picked up the plan to open the spaces,” co-owner Eric Papachristos told Boston.com.

The first new location will open on trendy Newbury Street, followed by the second on nearby Beacon Hill, home to the State House and many city and state agencies and his alma mater, Suffolk University.

“Back when I was in college, the Newbury location used to be Steve’s Greek, so I feel this is serendipitous,” Papachristos said. “We saw the space and thought, that’s for us. Newbury is great for outdoor dining and it’s one of the most beautiful streets to walk down.”

“I live in Downtown Crossing,” he added. “It’s an area I see coming back now with office workers and students returning.”
