Gyro City Is Opening in Brighton

A Greek eatery that opened in Boston's Fenway neighborhood a couple of years ago is expanding to another part of the city.

According to an article from Universal Hub, Gyro City has gotten approval by the Zoning Board of Appeals to open in Brighton, moving into a "long vacant, once fire ravaged block" on Chestnut Hill Avenue that will also become home to a cat cafe called PURR. The post says that the new dining spot will have seating for 40 and it will be a full-service restaurant, possibly with beer and wine if it is approved for a license. (UH also says that Gyro City still needs approval from the city licensing board to serve food.)

Gyro City first opened on Peterborough Street in March of 2014, moving into a block that was also destroyed in a fire.

The address for this new Green dining spot in Brighton is: Gyro City, 181 Chestnut Hill Avenue, Brighton, MA, 02135. The website for the original location can be found at

[September 5 update: Eater Boston states that Gyro City is now open in Brighton.]
