Olympic Restaurant should open by mid- to late-April at 1420 Nicollet Ave., said co-owner Ahmed Samaha, who also owns the Olympics Caf, 527 Hennepin Ave.
The new Loring Park eatery will offer inexpensive Greek and American food, he said. The menu includes walleye fingers and hummus, hamburgers and gyros, all in the $6 to $7 range.
The hours aren't firm, but Samaha said it would be roughly 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. "I have been thinking about opening 24 hours in the future," he said. "The people around here need something open late."
Abraham Mossa is the other coowner, Samaha said. Olympic is opening in the former site of Mykonos and Kypros restaurants.
