Jody Adams, the celebrated chef behind popular eateries TRADE and Rialto, is opening a Greek restaurant in Fenway this March, Zagat reports.
Saloniki is slotted to be a “fine-casual’’ joint with “customizable,’’ “build-your-own’’ menu options, according to Zagat. Spicy lamb meatballs, honey braised pork shoulder, and zucchini feta fritters will be on the menu, according to The Boston Globe.
Adams, a James Beard Award-winning chef, will be teaming up with Eric Papachristos, a co-owner of TRADE, and Jonathan Mendez, the opening restaurant manager of TRADE. Adams and Papachristos, along with TRADE co-owner Sean Griffing, are also pushing to launch a new seafood place in Avalon at the Prudential Center.
Update: This post has been updated to reflect the following: The restaurant name is spelled Saloniki. Jonathan Mendez was the opening restaurant manager at TRADE. Mendez will not be a part of the Avalon project; instead it will be Adams, Papachristos, and Griffing. We regret the errors.
