Since the restaurant Greek Isles closed last summer, several readers have asked what’s next for the popular South End spot.

“No plans to open Greek Isles yet, still haven’t found a location,” Frank Photopoulos, a co-owner of the Greek restaurant, told the Observer.

Photopoulos, a real-estate broker, owns the restaurant with his brother, Greg.

Frank Photopoulos said he has been busy working on other things, such as a wine/tequila bar in Ballantyne that he hopes to open by mid-August, and the French Quarter uptown, which his family has owned for over 30 years.

Greek Isles closed at 200 E. Bland St. last July after 11 years in business.

Bottle Cap Management, the parent company of the neighboring All American Pub and Slate, master-leased the entire building and opened a Mexican restaurant called Hot Taco in Greek Isles’ place.
