Great Greek gourmet
Since their July opening, Lama Plyler, the general manager at Great Greek Mediterranean Grill, said things have been going tremendously. Located at 708 W. Big Beaver Road, Suite 6, in Troy, the new restaurant offers, well, Greek food. Notably, Plyler said, their menu is full of authentic recipes, like dolmades (stuffed grape leaves), spanakopita, gyros, and baklava. There’s also baklava ice cream, feta fries, and rice bowls if you’re feeling less traditional and a little more daring. “There’s lots of sit-down, dine-in options but we wanted to bring a more delicious, healthy concept of fast-casual,” Plyler said. The owners of this location of The Great Greek are a group of family and friends who, after trying the restaurant during annual trips to Las Vegas, where it originated, wanted to bring the concept back home. Plyler said they hope to open two more locations in the mitten next year.
