The new menu adds Greek dishes like octopus salad, and features an all-Greek wine list, said Brian Harzewski, operations manager for Crush Hospitality Concepts.

The company, owned by restaurateur Paul Tsouflidis, also operates the Newbury Street fast casual restaurant and upcoming Newbury outlet at EXPO on Main Street.

“We’ve gone more authentic Greek and lost diner favorites like the Reuben (sandwich), for more of an upscale Greek menu,” Harzewski explained.

The restaurant still offers omelets, salads and sandwiches every day, but after 5 p.m. it’s more Greek. “We’ll be looking to offer more of the Greek restaurant than a family restaurant.”

Acropolis started as a souvlaki-centric Greek diner before broadening its offerings in 2010, adding a broader array of dishes and nightlife elements. It has about 60 seats on two floors.

The restaurant will start opening at 9 a.m. on weekdays, and keep the 8 a.m. start on weekends, Harzewski said.
