Mr. Gyros, the casual Mediterranean eatery in Greenwood (8411 Greenwood Ave N) is expanding to Ballard.
After being in Greenwood for seven years, owners and brothers Sammy and Joni Arsheed are busy working on their second location at the corner of 20th Ave NW and NW 56th St, next door to Golden City Chinese. The space will be similar to the first location, with an open kitchen, casual dining and a hard-to-miss yellow awning. “It’ll be the same as Greenwood,” Sammy says, “Bar stools and baskets. Get people in and out.” They plan on staying open late, like 2 a.m., on Fridays and Saturdays for those late-nighters who want something other than hot dogs, Sammy tells us. According to their project manager, Mike Hainsworth, the new shop should be open around the middle of June. (Thanks Silver for the tip!)
