Zeus Street Greek to open on Foveaux Street Surry Hills
April 2017 – Zeus Street Greek, a family owned group of fresh-casual eateries, is bringing its brand of Greek street food to Surry Hills on Thursday May 18.
Zeus Surry Hills will be located at 69-81 Foveaux Street and add a Mediterranean offering to the ever-evolving food scene in the inner-city suburb. The opening marks the brands ninth store in Sydney and 14th tribute to modern Greek cuisine in Australia.
Zeus Surry Hills will be the perfect spot for a lunch time pita stop, evening dinner catch up or weekend feast with the family, combining modern Greek street food with the best of Australian produce in a relaxed contemporary environment. The design melds art deco inspired geometry and bold shapes with 3D finishes adding warmth and vibrancy to the space, countering the exposed brick work and raw stone finishes.
The menu offering includes The Uncle Tzimmy family of three featuring high-quality hero proteins of chicken, pork and lamb from the souvla cooked traditionally on long skewers over hot charcoal; wrapped in fluffy pita bread with tomato, tzatziki, onion, paprika and Zeus’ famous chips. Uncle Tzimmy will be joined by the full range of pitas from Zeus’ recently launched menu along with Spartan Boxes, the perfect al-desko lunch packs, a swag of sides, vibrant salads and sweets to create a feast of God like proportions.
“Foveaux Street is one of Sydney’s most iconic. When the opportunity arose to bring Zeus to such a vibrant Surry Hills hot spot, we jumped at the chance,” says co-founder of Zeus, Costa Anastasiadis.
“The food scene in the area is so well established, we’re surrounded by awesome operators and are stoked to be adding our brand of Greek street food to the mix,” he added.
To celebrate the new opening Zeus Surry Hills will be hosting an I LOVE FREE SOUVLA Community Lunch on Friday May 26, where free pitas will be served from 12-3pm with $2 from each donated to local charity partner, Weave Community & Youth Services. Weave supports children, young people, and families as they navigate through difficult circumstances and provide access to opportunities that help break the cycle of disadvantage and empower people to change their lives.
“Weave is an organisation we’ve partnered with on a number of occasions, we love the work they do and are super proud to teaming up with them for I LOVE FREE SOUVLA Surry Hills. Weave’s work is focused on the inner city community, these events are an opportunity to give back to our community, so the partnership is a natural fit, said Costa.
