DINER: Harry Kambolis To Open “Nu Greek” Location On Robson Street This October

by Andrew Morrison | Taking a page from the Japadog playbook, restaurateur Harry Kambolis (of Raincity, Nu and “C” Restaurant fame) is taking his relatively wet-behind-the-ears Nu Greek food cart concept and turning it into a proper brick and mortar business (the food cart will remain strong as well). Ironically, as you can see from the shot above, it’s actually located in the 542 Robson address right next to the thriving Japadog spot. Yup, and just when you thought a Greek vs. Japanese smackdowns were getting passé…

I’m told that it won’t be open until the first week of October, and that the focus will mostly be on take-out (think souvlakis, spinach pies, greek salads), which gels well with this stretch of Robson’s food focus. I was sent a few mouth-watering, anticipatory OMG shots of some the chow that will eventually be in the offing, which you can view after the jump…
