The owners of the Moriches favorite Greek Bites Grill have leased space in Mattituck for a second location and they plan to open the doors on the new restaurant just after the turn of the year.
The 16-seat restaurant will focus on counter service and take-out for lunch, and servers may be available for table service for dinner and on weekends, says co-owner Dimitra Laopodis.
Laopodis and her husband, Spiro, opened the original Greek Bites Grill seven years ago. The Laopodises also ran a Greek Bites—later called Spiro’s—for two years in Southampton on County Road 39, in a location that now houses Saaz.
Laopodis says Mattituck appealed to them because there is year-round activity and the specific location—in a shopping center on Main Road with Mattituck Cinemas—draws people from the surrounding area.
The Mattituck menu will be the same as the Moriches menu, with traditional Greek cuisine such as gyros, spanakopita, spinach pies, tzatziki, kebobs, fried goat cheese. Laopodis says they may also introduce daily specials.
If everything goes well, the Mattituck Greek Bites Grill will open no later than the first week of January, she says. Her family is flying in from Greece to help open the restaurant.
