According to Urban Daddy :
“You’ll find a few of these already in Greece—but they’ve chosen our fair city as their first US outpost. And just about everything in this place comes directly from the land of the gods. Spinach pies, pasta, fava beans. Which bodes well for the next time you’ve got a gyro itch that needs to be scratched. Listen, Zeus takes his tzatziki pretty seriously. So now you’ve got a lunch-worthy Greek delicatessen in your back pocket. A casual, sunlit spot with a shady patio and wooden tables for replenishing yourself with pork belly gyros, double-fried french fries in a feta cheese sauce and Greek-coffee cheesecake. But they’ve also got a market in here, too. You can pick up a few souvenirs to take home. Like bottles of olive oil, jars of roasted eggplant and bags of Greek coffee.“
According to Eater :
“Popular Greek eatery, Ergon, has made its way to America. The fast casual chain, which already has nine locations across the world, opened its Coconut Grove location at 2982 Grand Avenue over the weekend and its Weston outpost at 1793 Bell Tower Lane today. With both owners originally from Greece, their aim with the restaurant is to serve authentic Greek cuisine, not the “Americanized Greek” cuisine that is popular in the States. The menu is filled with a variety of spreads, sandwiches made on Zak the Baker bread, deconstructed gyros made with pork belly and lamb, a Greek yogurt bar with pick-your-own toppings and cheese and spinach pies that are shipped in from Greece a few times a week.” written by Olee Fowler.
According to RealDeal :
“Ergon offers two menus: a la carte and deli. Prices range from $6 for traditional Greek spreads to $17 for grilled lamb chops. The grocery component sells items such as olives and olive oils; jams and preserves; honey; pickled and dried vegetables; wines; herbs and coffee; and pasta, rice and seeds. The restaurant uses Zak the Baker bread and sells many of its ingredients, Douzis said.” written by Katherine Kallergis.
According to Yelp :
“I think thy are off to a great start and will only get better with time. I loved that they gave out samples at the counter while we ordered. The sample of the coffee cheesecake was delicious. I would recommend trying it out. I got the chicken souvlaki which had a nice crispy skin but juicy meat. Came with sauce, tomato salad and pita. My boyfriend got the spinach risotto which was a little runny. We also shared the feta crust which I highly recommend. Perfect blend of flavors!” written by Sam W. (rated 4 stars).
