Thelo Greek Grill to open May 24 in Bethesda

UPDATE May 23 at 6:11 AM: Missing photos of the restaurant interior were added

Thelo Greek Grill has set a new opening date, this Thursday, May 24, 2018. The restaurant, located at 8009 Norfolk Avenue, takes over the old Bistro LaZeez space.

Owner John Panas, who was born in Greece, promises that the cuisine will offer the true flavors and hospitality of his native country. Most ingredients will be from local sources, and non-GMO. The chef will be Stavros Dimitriou.

The restaurant's interior reflects Greece, as well, with white walls, blue chairs, and a blue ceiling. A Santorini mural will anchor the dining room's decor. Greek music will round out the atmosphere, and Panas says he aims to keep prices affordable.

What was the place that used to be in the back of Montrose Crossing? That place had a huge following but my lord, did they fry some stuff. I sure hope this is real Greek and not fake and fried Greek.

"Missing" meaning that you forgot to include them, and didn't realize your mistake until more than a day later?
