It shouldn’t come as any surprise that the new Fresksos in New Haven has been building up a loyal clientele since opening its doors a few weeks ago — after all, the franchise’s Hamden location has been a big hit for years. Owner Peter Vouras came to the restaurant business after a successful career as an actor and comedian, and he drew on his family’s heritage and background in planning the menu and atmosphere at Freskos.
Many ingredients are imported directly from Greece, such as the traditional feta cheese, grape leaves, and more, and they’re used to make a variety of authentic Greek dishes like the souvlaki, creamy hummus, and rich avgolemono soup. If you’re looking for something quick and hand-held, Yelp reviewers say Freskos makes one of the best gyros in the area. Stop by and pick one up next time you’re in the neighborhood.
