EPHARISTO, epharisto, epharisto, Vernon Grille in Hunters Point will open on October 11 according to its owner. A look at its menu indicates Greek cuisine with more of an emphasis on meats than fish. In addition there are some standard diner offerings as well. Eventually they hope to be serving wine and beer but not on day 1. The price points are moderate and the look is casual, so as long the food is good they should kill it in this neighborhood. Opa!
