Portland’s Bayside neighborhood is about to get a little more Greek.
The detectives are here Portland Food Map recently reported that the popular food truck The Greeks of the Peaks has rented a popular place in the trendy neighborhood with plans to open their first physical location. The plan is for the store to be open for lunch and dinner.
The location is right on the corner of Anderson and Fox Streets. It formerly housed the Baharat restaurant, which was also a former food truck.
According to Portland Food Map, the concept will resemble a Greek tavern and offer fast-casual lunch options. Dinner will be more traditional and will use Greek flavors and seasonings to enhance the menu.
This is extremely exciting news for both the neighborhood and the city. Not only is The Greeks of Peaks delicious, but it’s also a small, local business that continues to thrive in an entire field.
Greeks of Peaks has been a staple of the Portland food truck scene for some time. When not at the Peaks Island American Legion, the truck can easily be found at catering events or at breweries, parks and even at Thompson’s Point for shows.
The truck has gained incredible popularity over the years, from its debut in 2017 to the long lines that can be found at shows and beyond. This news of this future restaurant will be good news for their multitudes of fans.
However, it hasn’t always been easy. Just last year, Greeks of Peaks received a major blow when their food truck on Peaks Island was demolished during a severe storm.
Fortunately, the community stepped up to help raise funds to offset some of the costs of the damage. According to Portland Food Map, the money raised will ensure that a truck will remain in operation on the island, even with the opening of the new brick and mortar.
According to Instagram page of the Greeks of the Picswe can expect the restaurant to open in spring 2024. I have to say I’m looking forward to it.
