1. George Tsiouris, whose extended family has been in the local restaurant business for half a century, will go before the Washington Square West Civic Association tonight with plans for a Greek-Mediterranean concept that he and his sister, Vasiliki, are (for now) calling Opa, at 1311 Sansom St. George Tsiouris says they'll cook traditional family recipes. The contemporary/modern/funky look, he says, will take inspiration from Athens' Gazi neighborhood. Opening is projected for spring. It's in the thick of what is emerging as the city's fastest-growing restaurant district. It's smack between Bar (due to open shortly) and Time; the soon-to-open Zavino is at the corner.
