Acropolis Greek Taverna set to open Fall 2017 in Sarasota!

Sarasota, Fla – Acropolis Greek Taverna is pleased to announce the expansion of their dining and entertainment Mediterranean cuisine restaurants concept in Sarasota at the University Town Center.

“Acropolis has seen a tremendous growth over the past 16 years,” said President Sam Waez.

“We have five locations now, the Sarasota franchise soon to open, and more to come,” he added.

Since announcing the new Sarasota location through their Social Media presence, the response has been overwhelming! Phones are ringing off the hook and we are even getting calls for reservations! We are so grateful to have such a loyal customer base and a show of support from the community that helped make Acropolis such a success!

Acropolis celebrates 16 years of lunch, dinner and happy hour weekly, and now offers weekend brunch, with a full bar, casual "tavern-style" dining and entertainment and serves amazing flavors of Mediterranean cuisine. Visit them for a meal, a glass of wine or cocktail. All locations have outside seating, hookah and are pet friendly. Acropolis transports you to Greece with live music, belly dancers, Zorba dancing, plate breaking, napkin throwing; OPA!

Acropolis has won Creative Loafing’s Best of the Bay in the Greek Restaurant and Best Hummus category. They host a weekend Champagne Brunch in select locations. Each location is active in their community through charitable giving including supporting the Make a Wish Foundation and local schools.
