The Fat Greek Restaurant by The University of Arizona Is Temporarily Closed

Posted By on Fri, Aug 10, 2012 at 10:00 AM

A water pipe broke in the space above the Fat Greek on the corner of Park Avenue and University Boulevard a couple of weeks ago, forcing owner George Markou to close the place and undertake a complete rebuild of the interior.

The windows of the restaurant are currently boarded up as construction workers begin repairing the damage. From the sounds of things that's going to take a while being that new plans need to be drawn up to bring the eatery up to new codes required by the city.

Here's the good news: Markou says that when the restaurant reopens in three to four months it will feature a larger menu including more traditional and seafood dishes.

"The new concept will have a full service evening dining and a counter service at lunch time," Markou wrote in an e-mail received yesterday.

For the time being, you could always go visit Markou's other restaurant, the Greek Taverna at 3225 N. Swan Road. That restaurant even features items from the wonderful Markou Ranch, where the owners raise goats, geese, sheep, chickens and enough vegetables to freshen up the restaurant's menu with a few homegrown items.
