UES fast-casual Greek outpost Mamagyro is aiming to conquer downtown, with a 30-seat shop that should open in December near Union Square. Mamagyro’s second outpost will feature a menu much like the original’s, with a mix of homestyle Greek cooking (gigantes plaki, spanakorizo, dolmades, etc.) and more contemporary fare like the namesake gyros; new for the sub-14th Street crowd will be the mama’s bowl, any salad with meat, rice, and pita chips. Co-owner Vicki Likitsakos attests that everything is housemade, and mentions that the shop will serve beer, wine, “and specialty drinks from Greece.” See the menu below.
Mamagyro, 820 Broadway, nr. 12th St.
