Grk is a counter-service Greek mini-chain, and we like to pretend it’s pronounced “gerk.” Try it. It’s fun. We also like to watch the big spinning columns of shawarma behind the counter. There are a few different kinds, including chicken, pork, and beef-and-lamb, and you can get this meat in a pita or on a platter with a couple of sides like fries and butter beans. It can get a little busy here at lunch, but the line moves quickly.
