The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill, a chain offering Greek cuisine at restaurants in twelve states, is planning to increase its presence in Las Vegas. The Mediterranean chain has five restaurants in the city, and paperwork recently submitted to Clark County shows plans to open a sixth in suite 100 at 2340 S Nellis Blvd, with an estimated budget of $301,000. A seventh location is also planned for The Bend in southwest Las Vegas.
“Our desire is to grow the brand to twelve locations in the Las Vegas Valley,” owner Nick Della Penna told What Now Las Vegas on Thursday. “We’re continuing to look for new locations. We’re a little over halfway there.”
The Great Greek’s menu features appetizers like Hummus, Melitzanosalata (roasted eggplant puree with garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice) and Dolmades (stuffed grape leaves). Familiar dishes like the Greek Salad, gyros (with lamb/beef or grilled chicken), and souvlaki (skewers of chicken, steak, lamb, or shrimp) are on offer, as well as entrees like the Gyro Plate and the Falafel Plate. For dessert, guests can choose from sweet options like Baklava, Mom’s Rice Pudding, and Kourabiedes Cookies.
The chain also offers a Kid’s Menu with dishes like Chicken Fingers and the Grilled Cheese Pita.
“Everything is prepared in house, and everything is cooked to order,” Della Penna said. “We pride ourselves on freshness, authenticity and a genuine hospitality.”
The Nellis Blvd location is expected to open in June, Della Penna said. No solid opening date is available yet for the location at The Bend.
