Back in June of 2020 we let you know that Ela Mesa Taste of Greece would be coming to the Spectrum Town Center in Gaithersburg. After almost two years, the restaurant has announced it will hold its grand opening on Monday, May 2nd. The new Greek restaurant is located at 109 Paramount Park Drive in the Spectrum Town Center in Gaithersburg, which is currently home to restaurants like Barking Made Cafe, California Tortilla, Hot Pot Hero, and Firebirds.
The pandemic, coupled with permitting and supply chain issues, caused the delays in the restaurant’s opening. The restaurant will offer traditional Greek fare and will also have a full bar that seats 10 people. Ela Mesa will be open Monday through Saturday 11am-10pm, and Sunday 11am-9pm.
Per the restaurant:
Ela Mesa, which means “come in” in Greek, aims to revive the richness of the Greek gastronomy, restoring Greek cuisine to its original Mediterranean values, based more on olive oil, seafood, vegetables, herbs, and fine foods. They plan to use modern cooking technologies and fresh ingredients, that will transform traditional Greek dishes into gourmet creations with a modern twist.
