Agios Greek Rotisserie now open on St. Mark's Place



An EVG reader let us know that the Greek restaurant is now in soft-open mode (as of yesterday) at 2 St. Mark's Place near Third Avenue/Cooper Square.

We don't know anything about the operation just yet. (An EVG reader heard that one of the people behind the excellent Taverna Kyclades is running the place here. That is an unconfirmed report.) Meanwhile, Agios is still hiring, according to this help-wanted ad.

The previous tenant at No. 2, St. Mark's Ale House, closed at the beginning of July after 21 years in business.

Did you know Ayios (alt. transliteration: Agios) means Saint? So Ayios is on Ayios Mark's Place!

I really like what they did with the place! Nice decor and really really good food. Nice bar to hang out and have dinner. I definetely suggest their gyros and the kontosouvli. Service is excellent. Gonna be going back for more soon

The people that are running it have no connection with Taverna Kyclades.

I went tonite. The owner's name is Angelo he was super nice. The food was great, very simple menu not complicated. Great price. Lovely atmosphere and decor. I definitely suggest it and would go back. - Beatriz

Popped in here two weeks ago with my daughter and was pleasantly surprised; First to find a new Greek option on St. Marks and second, the quality of the food.
Angelo greeted us at the door and told us he wanted us to feel as if we were in his home. Then the food started arriving. Awesome smokey warm pita breads, delicious Greek meatball on a bed of sumptuous mashed potatoes and octopus that made me think I was in the Mediterranean if I closed my eyes. Then onto the tasty and thoughtfully prepared spanakopita (you just have to, no?) and an order of skewered lamb with Greek potatoes. A couple glasses of rose wine and we left smiling and saying we will be back! Nice d├ęcor, an attentive staff and good food with a smile. What else does one need?

Tried this place last night. Popped in on a whim (remembered it being an ale house in the past) and i must say the food was excellent! Had the octopus, the pork with lemon potatoes and my wife had the gyro plate with french fries. Every plate was mouth-watering and the service was excellent! The decor was really nice and the only thing i didn't like, was that it was a little darkly lit...

Will definitely be back!
