Souvla Expands San Francisco Reach, Offerings in Dogpatch

Perhaps the name of the San Francisco trendy neighborhood of Dogpatch won’t whet your appetite but it will if you’re going to the newest branch, the fifth, of the Greek fast-casual chain Souvla.

“We weren’t really looking intently for another location, this amazing space sort of fell into our lap … very much a right time, right place situation,” Charles Bililies, CEO and founder of Souvla told SFGate.

He said he had his eye on the area that’s part residential, part-industrial and that, “the more we explored the space and the neighborhood, the more we realized what a great opportunity we had in front of us.”

Also right in front of you will be its well-known spit-roasted lamb gyro or chicken, and orange and fennel salads in the chain’s biggest spot yet across the City by the Bay.

“We have some tremendous culinary talent here and a number of great dishes that we’ve created outside of our core menu,” Bililies said. “So this gives us an appropriate venue to introduce those to more people.”

The goal is to create a more traditional Greek dining experience, centering around mezes, appetizers.


The arrival of spring means summer entertaining season isn’t far behind, which is an excellent excuse for a home bartending refresher.
