Fifteen months after he had to close his UA-area Greek restaurant, George Markou is back in business.
Markou will open Pelio Grill Greek Taverna & Catering at 994 E. University at 11 a.m. today. Its hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, until 10 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and mostly closed on Sundays except for special occasions.
Markou had operated Fat Greek in the space, at the corner of University Boulevard and North Park Avenue, for nine years before a flood originating from the upstairs business forced him to close in July 2012. He broke ground on completely renovating the space in July.
