A new shop specializing in authentic Greek yogurt and toppings opened this past weekend in Beverly Hills. Bridging the gap between the American-made Greek yogurt that can be found on grocery store shelves and self-serve frozen yogurt shops, Go Greek is a quick stop shop serving actual yogurt from Greece.
The menu offers four main ways to taste the yogurt: in a parfait (served in a terra cotta pot), to-go (in a jar), topped with fresh fruits and nuts (à la Pinkberry), and frozen. The shop has created parfaits that speak to a health conscious clientele: Yogurt topped with a sour grape compote is said to power up weight loss; one topped with rose jam is meant to tone skin.
Ownership is especially proud to be serving yogurt only in terra cotta pots. It's not only a nod to the environment. It's the way the yogurt would be served at a street stall in Crete.
Now open daily, from 8 a.m. on the weekdays, Go Greek is a concept looking closely at expansion.
