Brand New: Yasou Mykonos, Demarest, NJ
The thought of an actual restaurant (our apologies to Pizza Express, whoops Demarest Pizza) opening in Demarest comes as somewhat of a shock. Not as big of a shock when (yet another) Dunkin’ Donuts opened, but a shock nonetheless. After months of seeing the sign and another few of construction, they are officially open for business.
Yasou Mykonos is located in the building that housed Dr. Spector’s dentist practice for many years (and more recently a place called Powernet). The space has been completely renovated with a Greek motif, including tables for dining in and plenty of front counter space for takeout/delivery.
The menu is full of hot/cold apps, salads, soulvaki, gyro and other Greek specialties. It will be interesting to see how they fare with Zendiggi Kebab House opening a few months back in Closter (we know it’s Persian vs Greek food, however there seems to be at least a little overlap in their menus). Yasou Mykonos will also be offering delivery according to their menu and signs.
They have also been granted a temporary permit for outdoor seating comprised of no more than 4 tables with total seating for 12 patrons, which is a first for Demarest.
