Grk is a counter-service Greek mini-chain, and we like to pretend it’s pronounced “gerk.” Try it. It’s fun. We also like to watch the big spinning columns of shawarma behind the counter. There are a few different kinds, including chicken, pork, and beef-and-lamb, and you can get this meat in a pita or on a platter with a couple of sides like fries and butter beans. It can get a little busy here at lunch, but the line moves quickly.

The best way for us to give you the lowdown on this place is to explain that it's really two different experiences: the bar, and the dining room. One is a three course, prixe fixe fine dining experience, the other sleek, more relaxed, often features some Action at the Bar. If you're going, go big and eat in the dining room.
