If you’re a huge fan of Stella’s like me, this is really great news. The business’s second Grocery location (the first being across the street from the original Greek restaurant on Lafayette Street) has finally opened in Scott’s Addition.
Sure, there’s nothing better than eating at the restaurant, but sometimes you just want to take that deliciousness home and pop it in the oven. And there’s no waiting a month for reservations, either (that’s no exaggeration, either).
Here’s what you need to know.
From Richmond Magazine:
Scott’s Additionites, hold tight: A new neighbor is coming to town, and they are bringing Greek specialties and convenience to your doorstep. Stella’s Grocery, the second location of the upscale market from restaurateurs Katrina and Johnny Giavos, opens Thursday, April 12, at 3351 Moore St. in the former HandCraft building adjacent to Vasen Brewing Co.
The 3,600-square-foot space is an amped-up version of the market’s original location on Lafayette Street. The biggest difference? Made-to-order salads such as the Israeli Chopped, with falafel, romaine, hummus, tomato, cucumber, feta, lemon and a tahini dressing; sandwiches and paninis including the Roast Pork, featuring braised pork, garlic broccoli rabe, provolone and a rosemary aioli (designed to be assembled and ready to go in three to five minutes); a hot-food window where guests can order shish kebabs, Greek sides, and Stella’s famous roast chickens; plus an espresso bar and plans for smoothies in the future.
