Souvla, the growing Greek mini-chain, is taking its roasted meats to the East Bay this week for a limited time only partnership with delivery app Caviar. The fast-casual restaurant, which has locations in Hayes Valley, the Mission, and NoPa, is delivering dinner in Oakland and the East Bay (including Alameda, Berkeley, and El Cerrito) from Thursday, August 24 to Sunday, August 27.
Owners Charles Bililies and Tony Cervone will be operating out of Forage Kitchen, an Oakland food incubator with a roomy kitchen (Pal’s Takeaway also sells its popular sandwiches out of its cafe). The full dinner menu will be available for delivery (with the exception of the frozen Greek yogurt) from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Does this mean Souvla is eyeing an East Bay location? There is currently no concrete news about an expansion across the Bay, but the restaurant group is positioned for maximum growth, with development director Ben Pote dedicated to scouting and developing new stores. Bililies previously told Eater SF that the team would probably cap at four or five locations in San Francisco, with plans to expand outside the city and eventually, a new market altogether. There are already three Souvlas in prime SF locations, so perhaps East Bay fans of roast pork wrapped in warm pita, avgolemono soup, and granch (Greek ranch), should keep an eye out.
