It's a good time to be a college kid with an appetite. Greeks Gone Wild: Souvlaki, Wings & Things, at 2039 South University, and Aroma Cafe & Grill, at 2017 South University, are the two latest restaurants to take up residence on a one-block stretch of asphalt near the University of Denver campus that's shaping up to be a formidable grub romp.
The new joints have joined the likes of Pete's University Park Cafe (2345 East Evans Avenue); Mustard's Last Stand (2081 South University); Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill (2045 South University); Spicy Pickle (2043 South University) and Fuhgidabowdit Pizzeria (2041 South University), a great little pie stop owned by two former NYPD cops that stays up late (and delivers!) 'til 3 a.m., Thursday through Saturday.
While Aroma Cafe & Grill is already up and running, peddling Mediterranean and Indian food, the Greeks are still putting the final touches on their wild side.
