Huge salad news: Souvla is lastly resuming for takeout and shipment this weekend, to the enormous relief of fans of the fast-casual Greek mini-chain. Eater readers have been anxiously awaiting this moment given that the start of shelter in location, when all its places went totally dark, so this is rewarding news for everybody who enjoys their lamb salads, chicken wraps, Greek fries with harissa dip, and Greek frozen yogurt with baklava collapses.
” Honestly, it was the health and safety of all of our team, from the line level all the way on up,” Bililies says. “It was and is a severe scenario were confronted with, and we wished to err on the side of care, determine what was taking place, and resume as securely as possible.”
” Everyone is really excited,” creator and CEO Charles Bililies tells Eater SF. “Across 115 days, not a day goes by without multiple emails, tweets, and Instagram comments … Everyone simply misses us. Its been truly humbling.”
On Saturday, July 11, Souvlas Hayes Valley and Marina locations will finally reopen for takeout. Delivery from its SoMa location will follow, relaunching on Monday, July 13. Were not talking trimmed-down takeout offerings, either– its the full menu of everything you remember, from the fry-topped salads to the mineral-crisp white wines.
Souvlas 115-day closure has been one of San Franciscos great pandemic-era dining establishment mysteries. As one of the most successful fast-casual groups in the city, the restaurant currently excelled at takeout, has a delivery-only area, and even its own food truck, so it appeared preferably placed to continue after the shelter-in-place order dropped in mid-March.
Souvlas NoPa and Mission locations will remain closed for now, and Bililies states he has no plans for outdoor dining at any of the spots at present– even if the outdoor patio at the Divis place beckoned, restaurants would have to stroll down a narrow hallway to reach it.
Online purchasing– which, at present, is required– is readily available on Souvlas website and through its brand-new app, which is offered for both iPhone and Android. Diners can now set up ahead of time, tailor favorite orders, and save payment information at their convenience. For delivery, Souvla has actually been offered by means of Caviar for more than 5 years, and since Monday will also be available via Caviar moms and dad company DoorDash.
