Aegean Restaurant Is Being Reborn in Waltham

A beloved pair of Greek restaurants west of Boston may be gone, but a new location is now on the way.

A source tells us (via Kiat Cormier on the Chew on This Facebook page) that the Aegean Restaurant is planning to open in Waltham, with an Instagram page from the business saying "Look out for our opening day announcement!" while also indicating that it will offer both Greek and Armenian fare. Kiat mentions that the dining spot will be opening on Moody Street, with the address indicating that it will apparently move into the old S&S Tools space. The Aegean once had locations in Watertown and Framingham, though the former closed in 2016 and the latter closed during the pandemic and went up for auction last spring; both restaurants were known for their classic Greek dishes such as stuffed grape leaves, spinach pie, roast leg of lamb, gyro plates, shrimp kabobs, chicken souvlaki, moussaka, and pastitsio. 

The address for the Aegean Restaurant in Waltham is 741 Moody Street, Waltham, MA, 02453.
