Bay Area LIFE: Experience authentic Greek recipes in the Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Souvla is a new redesigned take on fine-casual dining with a Greek cuisine twist. The inspiration came from Greece as well as the casual souvlaki joints found within the Mediterranean country. The word "souvla" means "spit" or "skewer" in Greek-the rod on which meat is roasted. It is popular for their slow-roasted naturally raised meats with seasonal salads and Greek yogurt sauces. You will also find an exclusive Greek wine and beer menu. Souvla has three locations, NoPa, Hayes Valley and the Mission District.
