Grub learns that Pavlos and Abby Sierros, who co-founded the Souvlaki GR restaurant and truck, are no longer involved with the operation. “After more than a year of all-out commitment to the Souvlakitruck and the restaurant that was born of it, the couple have decided to move on to other endeavors, citing a difference in business philosophy as the reason for the split,” a statement said.
We reached out to the remaining owner, Kostas Plagos, for comment, but have not heard back; however, his sister-in-law Tina Plagos did tell us that the restaurant will not change and is in fact looking to expand. Meanwhile, Abby Sierros tells us she and Pavlos have signed a lease elsewhere on the LES. “The menu will consist of the food that makes us happy and that we’ve grown up with … regardless of its cultural origin,” she writes. There will be some Greek and Italian food, but “I wouldn’t call it a Mediterranean menu. It’s simply the food we love.”
