FARMINGTON—There’s a new restaurant in town, and this one is melding favorite flavors with a popular service idea.
“Greek your way,” is the theme of the new Santorini’s Greek Grill, which opened Nov. 9 at Station Park.
Patrons can choose their protein and their sauce and then add some extras when they order from the counter at Santorini’s, located at 290 N. Central Avenue.
“We are focusing on three things,” said Sean Dehghani, co-owner with Massoud Shafizadeh. “Customer service, food quality and speed. We will give it 100 percent.”
At a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening, Angie Osguthorpe, president and CEO of the Davis Chamber of Commerce, said the restaurant is the only one of its kind “in the entire world.”
She praised the owners and the chamber’s economic development team for “all this awesomeness.”
Patrons can choose between pita bread or a bowl of lemon rice, French fries, Greek salad or lettuce for the base of their meal, then add a protein such as lemon chicken, smoked garlic herb chicken, gyro meats or veggie falafel.
Toppings such as tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions and corn can be added as part of the meal. Adding feta cheese or Kalamata olives is also an option for an additional cost. Choices for the sauces range from Tatziki to garlic and herb, from lemon dill to honey mango.
Greek yogurt with a wide range of toppings is also on the menu.
Just walking into the restaurant transports you to the Greek island of Santorini, with large murals setting the backdrop for your meal.
“Davis County is just the place we want to grow,” said Dehghani, who lives in Clinton. “We love the concept, we love being local and we want to give back to the community.”
Santorini’s is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
