Time Out Market Boston, the food and cultural market based on editorial curation, announces an exciting addition to its impressive culinary mix. Joining the lineup of some of the city’s most acclaimed chefs and much-loved restaurateurs on October 7 is James Beard Award winner Jody Adams with her new concept, Greek Street.

Chef Jody Adams has truly left a mark on Boston’s culinary identity: For over twenty years she helmed Cambridge’s celebrated fine dining institution Rialto; in 2011 she opened the award-winning TRADE; in 2016, Porto followed with its mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine, quickly becoming a local favorite just like fast-casual Greek restaurant Saloniki, which opened in the same year. Now she will bring Saloniki spinoff Greek Street to Time Out Market Boston with partners Eric Papachristos—who grew up in Greece and joined forces with Jody Adams in 2011—and Jon Mendez—hospitality and operations expert, and co-founder of Saloniki.

Greek Street was inspired by the trio’s travels to Greece where they spent a lot of time walking the streets, learning about the country’s magnificent history, discovering food on small side streets from proud, family-run vendors and eating at locals’ homes. It is this delicious, authentic simplicity that the team will bring to Time Out Market with signature Greek Street creations such as citrus-marinated swordfish souvlaki, cumin-spiced beef patties, and pork schnitzel with Greek herbs.

Chef Jody Adams said: “Great food no longer depends on a fine dining environment and white tablecloth formality. Greek Street will offer guests a fine-casual experience and traditional Greek dishes full of simple and natural flavors and prepared with fresh and exceptional ingredients. I can’t wait to offer our mouth-watering dishes at Time Out Market Boston alongside the city’s most outstanding culinary talent.”

Didier Souillat, CEO of Time Out Market, commented: “Jody Adams is one of Boston’s most celebrated chefs. We have been dedicated to bringing her to Time Out Market Boston right from the beginning and we are very excited that she will now join our curated mix of the city’s top chefs and restaurateurs. It is our mission to showcase the best of Boston under one roof and an incredible range of food to choose from, so we regularly offer our guests something new to give them another great reason to keep coming back. It is truly exciting to welcome Chef Jody Adams and her Greek Street team to Time Out Market Boston—I know our guests will love the outstanding food they will serve.”

To select Boston’s top culinary talent, local Time Out editorial teams test and taste the city’s best food and then invite only the very best chefs and restaurateurs to join Time Out Market. The result of this curation is a stellar culinary mix, offering guests a diverse range of local cuisines that are affordable and accessible.

Located at 401 Park in the heart of the Fenway neighborhood, Time Out Market Boston offers across 25,000 sq ft eateries from 15 of the city’s most outstanding chefs and restaurateurs, a demonstration kitchen with rotating activations, two full-service bars with a curated beverage program, a retail shop, and ample communal-style seating. The unique architecture of the market blends the building’s original Art Deco feel with modern design elements, respecting the history of the iconic structure and making the space not only a culinary and cultural destination, but also a visual experience.
