Earlier this year, we reported that Faubourg, a popular French brasserie in Montclair, is making its way to Weehawken. Yet another Montclair restaurant is entering the Hudson County food scene, this time in the Newport Area of Jersey City. Efi’s Gyro, a casual Greek spot on Bloomfield Avenue, is opening its second location at 171 River Drive in a new residential building and is slated to open this summer. Keep reading to learn more about Efi’s Gyro and its upcoming Jersey City location.

What to Expect

Efi’s Gyro in Montclair is a casual and cozy restaurant, and we expect the same for its Jersey City sister spot. The décor is interesting without being overwhelming or intimidating. It feels like you are in a café on Greece’s seaside without having to leave New Jersey.

The Montclair menu packs a heavy punch of flavor, and if the Jersey City one is the same, there’s much to be excited about. The gyros and bowls are customizable with sauces and toppings to satisfy all palates. Efi’s Gyro serves up multiple meat options, including vegan-friendly “impossible meat” so that everyone can enjoy these Greek specialties together.

The pita and sausage are imported directly from Greece to ensure the most authentic experience possible. The pies, like spanakopita, meat pies, and sweet pies, are all made in-house.



About the Owner

The restaurant is owned by a long-time Montclair family, the Mihalises — with one of the family’s daughters, Efi Mihalis, running it. The Mihalises are tapping into their deep Greek roots and sharing their family recipes with the Montclair community through Efi’s Gyro and soon will do the same in Jersey City.

Montclair is the owner’s first restaurant but they have lived and worked in town for many years. Efi is front and center in Efi’s Gyro, cooking up savory meals for its patrons.

The Mihalises emigrated from Greece and the restaurant is the family’s way to honor their heritage.

In addition to Efi’s Gyro’s food options, the Greek iced coffee is a great way to end your meal. It is strong without being bitter and has a smooth finish — perfect for a hot day.
