My Big Fat Greek Cafe closes; the Recipe Box will take over the space

Lori Midson

My Big Fat Greek Cafe, a joint where gyros and green chile -- and gyros smothered with green chile -- shared space on the menu with big, fat Greek burgers, Greek salads and a strip steak for the bargain price of $6.99, has closed on South Broadway after its owner returned to his land of inspiration: Greece.

The space, which is currently under construction, will become the Recipe Box, a "fresh prepared foods market for the gourmet on the go," according to the new signage. I wish them luck, but isn't the "We prep, you cook" concept so ten years ago?

I say without reservation or hyperbole that the worst meals (yeah, I didn't learn my lesson after #1)  I have ever eaten in Denver were eaten at My Big Fat Greek Cafe. And watching the owner scream at his terrified staff wasn't much of an appetizer.

Hmmmmm. It might be a place I'd try if they offered a variety of vegan options.
