Fall River couple opens new Grilla Greek Kouzina restaurant in Taunton – Low Calorie Diets Tips

TAUNTON – Fall River residents George Tambasidis and Olta Joxhe are the owners of Taunton’s new Grilla Greek Kouzina, but they won’t fully appreciate the Greek specialties that feature on the menu.

Sure, they renovated the former Dunkin Donuts building on the corner of Broadway and Monroe Streets, they cook and run the restaurant, but Tambasidis’ grandmother, Stavroula Vantsouris, gets almost all the credit for the recipes.

Grilla Greek Kouzina opened on June 5 and it’s been an encouraging first day, with a line out the door and across the parking lot. Since then, business has been stable.

“It was very busy. Thank God. My grandma’s recipes worked,” said Tambasidis, who estimates “95 percent of them are definitely my grandma’s recipes.”

“And the rest is from our travels,” Joxhe said, “mainly from Greece.
