Lamb lovers, take note: Souvla is ringing in the new year by closing up its Hayes Valley location for a little under two weeks, starting on New Year's Day. So if you're craving some Mediterranean spit-fired meat, you'll need to hike up the hill to their Divisadero restaurant

From January 1st through the 11th, the popular Hayes Street Greek restaurant will undergo some cosmetic repairs. CEO Charles Bililies reports that since opening in 2014, Souvla has served tens of thousands of hungry customers, causing some wear and tear. So he's shutting down temporarily to put up a fresh coat of paint, install some new tile, and update the restroom. 

Beyond that, there will be no changes made to the menu, hours or the team.

Hayes Valley was the first Souvla location for Bililies, who also has a forthcoming location on Valencia Street, in addition to the Divisadero outpost.

"As a Hayes Valley resident, business owner and board member of the Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association, it has been so incredible to be a part of this community for the past three years, and be a component of its growth and evolution," he told us via email.

"Hayes Valley will always be Souvla's home, and we look forward to many more years of feeding its residents, merchants and visitors!"

If you live in Hayes Valley and don't feel like going up to Divisadero for your Souvla fix, you can also order delivery from the restaurant.
