We received a nice note from Tony of Plaka Estiatorio explaining what their name means. According to Tony, "'Plaka' is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Athens, Greece. 'Estiatorio' is the Greek word for restaurant." So there you go, our own Greek Neighborhood Restaurant coming to Ballard.
Tony said they're aiming to open early next month. We'll let you know as soon as we find out.
Their web site is updated and contains a fun construction slide show. We just realized from looking at the photos that they are in the old Watch Repair shop. What a transformation they have made so far. We've included a peek at the inside and our favorite construction picture. It's hard work taking down lights!
They're located at 5407 20th Avenue NW near Epilogue books and the Thai Restaurant.
We can't wait to see what's on their menu!
