Burger stop goes Greek October 29, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Greek Taste World.

Carla Martino doesn’t want Nevada’s Carson City to think of her restaurant as just another burger joint. The Italian-American decided to make a market switch to Greek. Juicy’s of Carson City is now Paniphias Grill, headed by Greek cook Daniel Demetriou.

Martino and co-owner Kevin Burns are investing about $50,000 to make the burger stop a sit-down restaurant with a line of Greek food. Some of the additions, such as lamb and chicken gyros, start this week. The 2000 N. Carson St. restaurant will shut down for about 10 days in January for the kitchen and dining room renovations.

The restaurant has been Juicy’s since 1985, she said. Martino bought it in 1998. The restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. On Wednesday, 10 percent of proceeds will be donated to Carson High School.
