Studio City has itself a new fast-casual Greek spot, right in the same plaza that just landed an outpost of healthy Beverly Hills cafe Comoncy. Called Meraki Greek & American Cuisine, the simple space takes over a former Cold Stone Creamery (which was, before that, a clothing store).
Things are pretty quiet inside design-wise, with a stripped down mostly white interior that includes a glass-walled counter up front and painted brick walls. Most of the color comes from wood flooring, hanging lanterns and two wide menus showing off the casual fare. The best bet for a table is out front, where a handful of sidewalk four-tops make for pretty cozy seating.
As for food, there’s the usual skewers and grilled meats, plus salads and simple desserts. The best bet here may well be the rotisserie chicken, which at $10.75 for a full bird is sort of a steal.
Meraki is open daily at 11 a.m., and runs until 9 p.m. most night (10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday).
