iSouvlaki has closed on 12th Street

Photos by Steven 

After two years at 139 E. 12th St., iSouvlaki has apparently closed here just west of Third Avenue. (H/T EVG reader Todd!)

Workers have removed the iSouvlaki signage and the interior is in some disarray...
There isn't any official notice about this closure. This outpost is no longer on the iSouvlaki website, which lists a new location coming soon to Chelsea. 

The quick-serve concept offered falafel, salads and other traditional Greek cuisines... via James Paloumbis, whose credits include Merakia on West 22nd Street and Gossip Coffee in Astoria. 

Previously here: Greekito closed in November 2018, shortly after changing up concepts from the Wayside, a cafe-coffee shop that lasted six years.

Let's see how long this space stays vacant... seems like a decent location with its proximity to NYU and New School dorms... not to mention venues like the Loews Village 7 and Webster Hall...

iOrdered from here a few times and iEnjoyed it. Despite the name.

The name of this place made me assume it was destined to fail

The food was good there and i was eating it 1-2x a week during Covid. Then they raised the prices and it became a bit overpriced for me. Sad to hear them close

Quality declined and priced went up. Bad combo. RIP

I ate a lot of souvlaki during the pandemic, but from Pylos, a bit nearer to me. I’m not sure they still have it but they had a dinner special that was generous enough for 2 meals for $20.

Tragic. 99 miles to Philly, then this place. I am out of options.
