If you're a fan of Prasino, you'll want to check out their new place, Covo Gyro Market, which opened this week. Owner Ted Maglaris recently talked to Eater about Covo, saying that the industrial-yet-rustic new spot will have gyros the way they were meant to be had, like what he ate during his youth in Greece.

At Covo, which is Greek for "to carve," you'll first pick a style (gyro, mini or salad) a hand-packed meat (beef/lamb combo, free-range chicken or pork, all seasoned with herbs and spices) and then add on sides like hand-cut fries or made-fresh-daily regional salads like quinoa or tabouli. Maglaris said he'll also introduce different types of meat, like turkey, as specials for gyros.

"That's exciting to bring and re-invent what gyros are supposed to be about," Maglaris said. "There are Mediterranean twists with American influences to cater to everyone's palate."
