Fast-Casual Restaurant The Simple Greek Coming to Colonial Village

A fast-casual Greek restaurant is set to move into a shopping plaza in the Colonial Village neighborhood near Rosslyn.

The Simple Greek will arrive at 1731 Wilson Blvd, according to signs posted on the long-vacant storefront. It will be between the Guajillo Mexican restaurant and the Beangood! Coffee Pub, in the former Virginia ABC store space.

According to its website, the restaurant “is redefining the traditional Greek restaurant with an interactive concept that combines high quality ingredients, open kitchens and Greek atmosphere in a fast casual setting.”

Customers build their own meal by ordering from a combination of proteins, toppings and sauces, with sides, drinks and desserts also available. A Greek yogurt can also be built, with various sweet and savory options.

Already, The Simple Greek has 15 locations in Pennsylvania, Texas, Illinois, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Kentucky, Ohio, Florida and Arizona.

More are set to come in Florida, New Jersey, Texas, Indiana, Connecticut, North Carolina and Rhode Island. The Arlington location will be the first in Virginia.

Representatives with The Simple Greek did not respond to questions on an opening date. So far, no permitting applications have been filed with the county.
