GRK Fresh Opening Downtown

GRK Fresh is set to open at 1000 F Street NW this spring. As the name suggest, this is a fast casual restaurant with Greek food, all centered around the gyro, or "yeero." They appear to have some vegetarian if not vegan offerings.  Check the menu. This will be the third DC location (Foggy Bottom, Dupont). GRK Fresh is already open on two continents with more stores in New York, and then Qatar and UAE.
