Potomac Yard’s new retail center Tony’s Corner, which replaced the popular Afghan Restaurant, will soon have its first tenant opening their doors. Souvlaki Bar, a new authentic Greek restaurant is opening this summer at the corner of 2700 Jefferson Davis Highway and E. Raymond Avenue in Alexandria.
The 56-seat restaurant will be offering delivery and we hear will be open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm Sunday to Thursday and 7:00 am to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
The slogan for the restaurant as ‘Festive Greek’. Owners Christos Sarantis and Tom Christopoulos describe the new restaurant as ‘Greek-inspired casual dining, fresh food prepared and cooked to order on premises; beer and wine on premises, with table wait service, delivery and take-out services’ in their planning documents (PDF).
As you can see below, the restaurant is still being framed. While we wait for the new joint to open, consider giving them a like on Facebook.
